Abe Elam's father passes away

IRVING, Texas -- Cowboys safety Abram Elam left Valley Ranch following Thursday's practice because of the death of his father, Rev. Donald Elam Sr. Elam is taking Jerry Jones' private plane to Florida to be with family and close friends. It's uncertain if Elam will return for Friday's practice but it appears he will play in Sunday's game at Arizona. Elam said he was notified about his father's passing around noon. The Cowboys safety has endured the loss of several family members. In May 2008, when Elam played for the New York Jets, he left minicamp because older brother Donald Elam Jr. had been killed. In 1999, Abram Elam lost his 12-year old sister and in 1987, an 18-year old brother.
