FRISCO, Texas — Ezekiel Elliott’s holdout wasn’t a topic when Jason Garrett addressed the Dallas Cowboys for the first time at training camp in California, or at least that’s what the coach says.
Now that the Cowboys have held their first practice in preparation for the opener against the New York Giants at home Sunday and Elliott still isn’t around, Garrett says the approach hasn’t changed.
“Again, we’re just focused on our football team now,” Garrett said Monday on the fourth straight Elliott-related question to start his daily meeting with reporters. “We’re going to practice at 10:45. It will be an hour and 15 minutes and we’re going to go out and practice as well as we can. That’s really where our attention is.”
Similar questions could have been asked before any of the 15 practices in Oxnard, or the five at the team’s facility in Frisco, and Garrett’s answer would have been about the same.
