The Cowboys were given a custody exemption after Elliott signed a $ 90 million six-year extension on Wednesday, claiming $ 50 million in guarantees.  Elliott participated in all three exercises during the week and was declared fit for action, but Jason Garrett did not want to comment on the role of the return after he missed the entire training camp.
The Cowboys signed Morris on July 30 at Elliott Springcamp. He played for the Cowboys in 2016-17 and spent the last season with the San Francisco 49ers.
If Morris had been on active duty on Saturday, his base salary of $ 930,000 would have been guaranteed for the season.
It is possible that the Cowboys might try to re-sign Morris. Rookie Tony Pollard, Jordan Chunn, who spent the last season in the training team, and Jamize Olawale are the others who come on the 53-man list of cowboys with Elliott.
