Jones appeared on NFL Network's of Cowboys training camp on Saturday. He acknowledged the call from some in the Cowboys' fanbase to have backup Tony Pollard on the field more.
Jones wants Pollard on the field more as well. However, any increased playing time for the 25-year-old won't come at Elliott's expense.
"We gotta have Tony Pollard out there. No, seriously, Zeke's gotta be our feature, and he is our feature," Jones said. "We can feature him in a lot of different ways. We all recognize what he does in the passing game because of his protection ability. Don't ever underestimate that, especially with Zeke. Zeke takes some tolls when he's out there as a back blocking.
"So it's critical that we make Zeke -- because he's capable of being that -- really the focus of what we're doing. Now then, Pollard, there's plenty of room for Pollard. There's plenty of room for Pollard when Zeke's in there. Pollard needs to get the ball."
