Ezekiel Elliott remains out of Dallas Cowboys training camp, and it doesn't sound like he was a big fan of Jerry Jones' comments over the weekend.

After Saturday's preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams in Hawaii, Jones was asked about the performance of rookie running back Tony Pollard and if Pollard was his best "negotiator" with Elliott.

"Zeke who?" Jones quipped, before going on to say his team needs both Elliott and Pollard.

Well, even with Jerry further clarifying himself, it seems that Zeke and his agent weren't happy with the "Zeke who?" quote, which they claim was "disrespectful."

It is now less than three weeks until Dallas' season opener against the New York Giants, and both sides appear to be digging in their heels. Jones is still touting Pollard and Elliott hasn't left Mexico.

There is time to get a deal done before the end of the summer, and even if that doesn't happen, it still seems unlikely that Zeke would sit out the entire season, a la Le'Veon Bell.

The clock is ticking though, and there are no real signs of progress either.
