The Dallas Cowboys‘ rookie training camp opened Wednesday, providing local media an opportunity to speak with head coach Jason Garrett about some team matters that have made the news recently.
Of particular note is running back Ezekiel Elliott who may be handed a suspension for a 2016 domestic violence accusation, was reportedly involved in an altercation at a Dallas bar on the weekend, and is appealing a speeding conviction. Garrett told reporters that he intends to speak with Elliott on Friday, a day before veterans report to training camp.
Garrett didn’t speak to any specific events, but said the Cowboys believe in the 2016 rushing leader as a person and player and will provide support to his youngsters “to help them make great decisions to grow.”
As a rookie, Elliott led all backs with 1,631 rushing yards and added 15 touchdowns on the ground.
