Jones: Elliott has met with league officials
oxnard, calif. — Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has met with NFL officials as the league considers possible disciplinary action against him under the sport’s personal conduct policy, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Saturday.
“They have had their hearing and they have had all of the responses,” Jones said at the team’s training camp. “Everything is in place to make a decision.”
The meeting took place in New York “within the last month,” Jones said. He declined to say whether NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell participated in the meeting.
“I don’t want to get as to who was there,” Jones said. “But it was certainly represented by key league officials as well as Zeke’s representatives as well as Zeke.”
The NFL has been investigating an incident last year involving Elliott and his thengirlfriend. Elliott was not charged with a crime.
ESPN reported earlier this month that Elliott and his representatives are braced for a short suspension of possibly one to two games. A person familiar with the league’s inner workings dismissed the report at the time as speculation, saying the investigation was not completed.
Jones has said he does not believe that Elliott, the NFL’s leading rusher last season as a rookie, deserves to be suspended.
