If Ezekiel Elliott does not win a preliminary injunction on Dec. 1, the next time the Dallas Cowboys will see their running back will be Dec. 18, after they play the Oakland Raiders.

Owner and general manager Jerry Jones is not worried about Elliott being away from the team during the suspension.

"I think he's got a good plan, and I know he's going to be doing stuff," Jones said after the Cowboys' 27-7 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. "He's going to get away, and he's doing some things that will help his career and his life, and so, no, I'm not as concerned about that."

Elliott cannot have contact with the front office and coaches during his suspension. He can have contact with the team's athletic training staff.

Jones would not get into where Elliott will be during the suspension. Reports had Elliott spending time out of the country.

Dak Prescott said he has communicated with Elliott since the suspension kicked in.

"He's doing well," Prescott said. "We just shared text messages as friends -- not as employees or teammates, not even talking about football for the most part."

Elliott was able to play in the first eight games through a number of legal decisions, but he lost a temporary administrative stay that kept him on the field in last week's win over the Kansas City Chiefs. He will miss at least the next four games, pending a Dec. 1 hearing, and he is likely to miss the next six.
