Dallas owner spoke to NFL counsel about Elliott abuse probe
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has acknowledged speaking with the NFL’s special counsel for domestic violence investigations, and rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott said he was interviewed by the league this season about an abuse claim made against him.
Elliott said after Sunday night’s 29-23 overtime victory over Philadelphia that he was interviewed once by league investigators about six weeks ago. He characterized there being “an ongoing investigation” but said he didn’t really know what was going on.
Prosecutors in Ohio declined to press charges over the summer in a domestic violence case involving the fourth overall draft pick.
“All I can do is not worry about it, focus on this team and do whatever I can do to help these guys get wins,” Elliott told the AP after running 22 times for 96 yards and catching four passes for 52 yards against the Eagles.
