It's looking like things are only going to get uglier between Ezekiel Elliott and the Dallas Cowboys.

With Jerry Jones' boys in the middle of training camp, Zeke has been a complete no show. As we all know, No. 21 is still waiting for Jones to pony up and give him a new contract. Well, until that happens, Elliott reportedly has no problem staying far away from his teammates.

Buckle up, folks. Per a source close to Josina Anderson, Elliott won't suit up until he gets paid. Anderson also noted, however, that it's not likely the two sides don't come to an agreement.

Regardless, everything sure seems to be up in the air as to when Zeke will return to practice. Though Jones made the absurd claim the Cowboys don't need a rushing champ to win the Super Bowl, Dallas most certainly needs Zeke on the field if they want to make a serious push in the postseason.

The longer this nonsense continues, the more nervous Cowboys fans, and Jones for that matter, will get. Elliott is one of the top running backs in the league. If Dallas truly wants to try and return to its Super Bowl-winning ways, they're going to have to pay Zeke. Simple as that.
