Don't exclude Ezekiel Elliott from playing for the Cowboys in the first week.
Elliott and the Cowboys are getting closer to a new deal, and I hope they make it this weekend, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
This comes after a week in which Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones downplayed the importance of Elliott's immediate deal, saying it was really important to keep Elliott healthy for the playoffs.
It was said that Elliott wants to be the highest paid team in the NFL and it's not clear if Jones is ready to go that high. But it seems more likely Jones will get high enough to put Elliott in the basket before the Cowboys open their season next Sunday against the Giants.
