DAL­LAS’ JONES STILL EX­PLOR­ING LAT­EST EL­LIOTT IN­CI­DENT

TEXAS» Dal­las Cowboys owner FRISCO,

Jerry Jones on Tues­day said the team is still gath­er­ing de­tails over Ezekiel El­liott’s in­volve­ment in an al­ter­ca­tion at a Dal­las bar, the lat­est off-field in­ci­dent for the star run­ning back.

El­liott, who was al­ready fac­ing a po­ten­tial sus­pen­sion over the NFL’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion of a year-old do­mes­tic case, was in­volved in a dis­pute Sun­day night that led to a man get­ting punched in the nose and be­ing taken to a hos­pi­tal. Dal­las po­lice said the 30-year-old man didn’t know who punched him, and the re­port does not men­tion El­liott. Dal­las po­lice also are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the in­ci­dent.

Jones said he didn’t want to spec­u­late about a pos­si­ble sus­pen­sion. An NFL spokesman said the league is look­ing into the lat­est in­ci­dent “to un­der­stand the facts.” One of El­liott’s rep­re­sen­ta­tives didn’t re­turn a mes­sage seek­ing com­ment.

• Detroit Lions de­fen­sive end Ar­monty Bryant was sus­pended for the first four games of the sea­son for vi­o­lat­ing the NFL’s sub­stance-abuse pol­icy. He can re­turn to the ac­tive ros­ter Oct. 2.
