Jones: El­liott has met with league of­fi­cials

The Washington Post Sunday - - REDSKINS TRAINING CAMP -

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.

TI­TANS: Ten­nessee wrapped up the last of the NFL’s firstround draft picks still with­out a deal, agree­ing to terms with wide re­ceiver Corey Davis.

The 6-foot-3, 209-pound wide re­ceiver from Western Michi­gan was the fifth over­all se­lec­tion.

CHARG­ERS: Los Angeles placed rookie wide re­ceiver Mike Wil­liams, the sev­enth over­all pick out of Clem­son, on the phys­i­cally un­able to per­form list with a back in­jury. The team is op­ti­mistic Wil­liams can avoid ma­jor surgery af­ter he in­curred a her­ni­ated disk in his lower back dur­ing the first day of the Charg­ers’ off­sea­son pro­gram.

RAIDERS: Oak­land signed first-round draft pick Gareon Con­ley on the eve of their first train­ing camp prac­tice.

Con­ley, selected 24th over­all, signed his con­tract Fri­day night but was placed on the phys­i­cally un­able to per­form list Satur­day with an undis­closed in­jury . . . .

Pro Bowl left tackle Don­ald Penn was a camp hold­out be­cause of a con­tract dis­pute. Penn is en­ter­ing the fi­nal year of a twoyear, $11.9 mil­lion con­tract.

FAL­CONS: Wide re­ceiver Devin Fuller, a sev­enth-round pick from UCLA in 2016, will miss the rest of the sea­son af­ter suf­fer­ing a torn an­te­rior cru­ci­ate lig­a­ment in prac­tice Fri­day.
