Ezekiel Elliott's Agent: 'Possible He Will Miss Some Games'

Elliott is the latest of several top National Football League running backs who have held out of training camp or regular season games amid a contract battle.

ESPN reported Tuesday from sources close to Elliott that he will not play this season without a new contract.

The Ohio State product has been in Cabo San Lucas to train as the Cowboys continue their training camp in Oxnard, Calif. Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer has indicated that contract talks with Prescott and Elliott have progressed further than Dallas' negotiations with Cooper.

Elliott has two years remaining on his current contract, while the other two stars have one.

Ezekiel Elliott could pull a Le'Veon Bell if he doesn't get what he wants.

The government is not involved in the peace talks because the Taliban refuse to deal with them, labeling them a USA puppet. President Ashraf Ghani, who is seeking a second term in office, is among more than a dozen candidates.

Elliott is under contract through 2020.

The dialogue between the sides has continued privately through all of this, according to sources, and Jerry Jones has made it known both publicly and privately that he is willing to make the running back among the highest paid at that position in the history of the game.

The next question is whether Elliott would return in time to get credit for this year of his contract. Carson Wentz, who was taken in the 2016 NFL Draft along with Prescott, recently signed a new deal that will pay him an average $32 million salary.

The Dallas Cowboys are still trying to work out a long-term contract extension with Ezekiel Elliott before the start of the regular season, and the star running back is apparently serious about not reporting if the two sides can not come to an agreement.
