(105.3 The Fan) -- Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott and his agent Rocky Arceneaux aren't too happy with Jerry Jones after he made a joke after Saturday's preseason win over the Los Angeles Rams.

When asked about rookie Tony Pollard's strong performance after the game, Jones said, "Zeke who?" to 105.3 The Fan's Mike Fisher and other media members. Jones quickly added, "we're having some fun.''

Arceneaux spoke to ESPN's Chris Mortenson Monday, saying he nor Elliott thought the joke was funny and thought it was 'disrespectful.' 

Pollard had five carries for 42 yards and a touchdown in the 14-10 win over the Rams. 

Arceneaux told Mortenson that Elliott is back in Cabo San Lucas training for the upcoming season after he was seen on a flight back to Dallas over the weekend. 

Elliott continues to holdout from the Cowboys in search of a new contract despite being under contract through next season. 

Arceneaux said there was 'no real activity yet on negotiations,' per Mortenson.
