Abram Elam Plays With A Heavy Heart

GLENDALE, Ariz. --Sunday's loss to Arizona was a disappointing end to a very difficult week for Abram Elam.

The Cowboys' starting strong safety lost his father on Thursday, flew home to Florida on Jerry Jones' private jet that night, then returned to practice Friday and flew with the team to Arizona. He had four tackles against the Cardinals.

Elam said funeral services are scheduled for the end of the week.

"It's been an emotional week for me," he said. "I'm just blessed to have the support that I have here from the Cowboys family. I'm just looking forward to moving forward through everything."
