Jerry Jones swallowed his pride once this offseason when the Dallas Cowboys released Ezekiel Elliott, a player with whom he formed a close relationship.

The move took an admission that Elliott's rapidly declining athleticism wasn't worth keeping on his now-former salary.

Apparently, that was enough pride-swallowing for one offseason for the Cowboys owner, who told reporters this week that there will be no new members added to the franchise's Ring of Honor this year, marking the fifth-straight year that the group remains at 22 members.

This means legendary coach Jimmy Johnson will wait another year, if not longer, to get his due entry. A Pro Football Hall of Famer, Johnson led the Cowboys to two Super Bowl titles in five years and finished with a 44-36 overall record after going 8-24 in his first two seasons before a power struggle with Jones led to his unceremonious departure.

Jerry Jones snubs Jimmy Johnson from Cowboys Ring of Honor

It's (still) an embarrassing look for Jones, who, if you remember, took some of the shine away from Johnson's Hall of Fame weekend by proclaiming that the Hall of Fame coach would finally be commemorated in the Ring of Honor.

That promise has not been kept.

Maybe one day Jones will take ownership for how his relationship with Johnson deteriorated. Regardless of who's to blame, though, it's an abomination that Johnson, a driving force in two of the Cowboys' five Super Bowl wins, can't get into the team's Ring of Honor because of a long-standing feud with the owner.

Johnson would love nothing more than to be enshrined in the Ring. The FOX analyst also understands it's out of his control and he's unaware when (or if) that day will come. Here's what he told 105.3 The Fan last year.

“I’d be honored. The Dallas Cowboys are a big part of my life, so I take great pride in that. Jerry has told me a half dozen times he’s gonna do it, but I have no control over that. That’s up to Jerry. When and if he decides to put me in, I would be honored. But if he decides he doesn't want to do it, I'd understand."

Like we said earlier: Embarrassing.

Transitioning to other Cowboys news, CeeDee Lamb left Wednesday's minicamp practice early with an apparent leg injury. Lamb limped around after colliding with Israel Mukuamu on a route during a 7-on-7 drill. Despite being hobbled, Lamb still made a spinning one-handed grab before favoring his leg.

Lamb was looked at by the training staff and sat out briefly before returning for a couple plays. He never went to the training room and he stayed on the sidelines in support of his teammates, per Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News.

Thankfully, this seems like a non-issue, though we're not opposed to Lamb sitting out a few days to get back to 100 percent if wakes up sore Thursday. He's vitally important to the offense and needs to be managed with utmost caution.
