The Dallas Cowboys left for training camp without a key player on the charter flight to Southern California on Thursday.
Two-time Pro Bowl running back Ezekiel Elliott was not with his teammates and coaches on the team plane, a source confirmed to NBC 5 Sports Director Newy Scruggs.
Elliott has until Friday to report to training camp in Oxnard, California. The Cowboys can fine their star running back up to $40,000 for each day missed, according to the current Collective Bargaining Agreement.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett told reporters on Wednesday he expected Elliott to report to camp on time. Dallas will hold the first practice of training camp on Saturday in Oxnard.
