SPORTS briefs Cowboys still ex­plor­ing lat­est El­liott in­ci­dent: Jones

The Western Star - - Sports -

FRISCO, Texas - Dal­las Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tues­day 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.”
