Jerry Jones: 'You don't have to have a rushing champion to win a Super Bowl'

Cowboys training camp is underway in Oxnard. Ezekiel Elliott is still not present.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones briefly addressed the situation on Sunday night.

"You don't have to have a rushing champion to win a Super Bowl," Jones said in a one-on-one interview with CBS 11 Sports on Sunday.

Jones has previous experience in this department. In the 1992 season, Emmitt Smith became the first-ever rushing champion to be a member of a championship team as the Cowboys defeated the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXVII.

Fantasy Impact: 

In Elliott's absence, Darius Jackson and rookies Tony Pollard and Mike Weber will have the opportunity to make an impression of their own in Kellen Moore's new offense during training camp.

Jones went on to say in the story: "Consequently, when we are looking at putting Zeke's contract in place, we've got to realize that the ultimate goal is to win the Super Bowl. So, you've got to do all of the things along with having Zeke that allow you to have other players so that you can win the Super Bowl."

Other reports today said Elliott is on his way to Mexico to train, like he did during his suspension.
