Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones reiterated his position on the Ezekiel Elliott investigation, stating the league has all the information needed to make a decision regarding the domestic violence allegation involving the running back.
Jones said he expected an imminent decision Thursday and defended Elliott, stating “there’s no domestic violence involved here.”
After Saturday’s practice session ended, Jones spoke candidly about the NFL’s investigation of Elliott.
“They have had their hearing and they have had all of the responses. Everything’s in place to make a decision,” Jones told reporters Saturday. “I think anything is discretionary. At any time you can ask for more meetings, whether it’s the league or whether it’s Zeke.”
Commissioner Roger Goodell reportedly hasn’t been involved during the investigation, nor has he been present at any of the disciplinary hearings involving Elliott.
When the league concludes its investigation, it’s possible that Elliott could be suspended immediately ahead of the upcoming season.
