ARLINGTON - Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott continues his holdout that reached 30 days on Saturday.
Elliott remains in Cabo working out and was expected to receive a visitor in Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk. Faulk said he was going to workout Elliott while in Cabo.
In terms of contract talks, Jerry Jones said nothing is progressing.
"Again, I don't, you never know until it's done and I don't know," Jones said on the Cowboys' pregame show on 105.3 FM. "And not because I don't know what we think, I just don't know how it is there. So that's the way it is. It could drag on or it could happen quickly."
At the start of the holdout, the Cowboys informed Elliott he's subject to fines at the maximum allowed in the collective bargaining agreement, $40,000. Following Saturday's third preseason game against the Texans, the total reached $1.2 million.
Tony Pollard replaced Elliott in the starting lineup and rushed for 26 yards on six carries in playing two series on Saturday.
Babe Laufenberg spends time with family: Cowboys radio analyst Babe Laufenberg missed the game to be with his family following the passing of his son, Luke Laufenberg, to cancer. Luke Laufenberg died on Thursday after a two-year battle. He was 21. Bryan Broaddus, who works for the Cowboys website, took over for Laufenberg. Broaddus is a former scout for the Cowboys.
Also, Jay Kovarsky, known on the radio as Jay Kay for 92.5 FM, was the public address announcer at AT&T Stadium. The Cowboys haven't made Kovarsky the full-time replacement because they're still working out some game day issues. Roger Emrich was the public address announcer for eight seasons before he passed away April 27.
The Cowboys hired Robb Coffey as the press box announcer. Coffey is the announcer for North Texas football and basketball in addition to UIL state basketball, volleyball and track and field events.
