Jerry Jones: No Domestic Violence Evidence Against Ezekiel Elliott

Jerry Jones said he has seen "absolutely nothing" to substantiate domestic violence allegations against Ezekiel Elliott.

"Because as sure as I'm sitting here we are going to have some that we don't even mention here today", said Jerry Jones, Dallas Cowboys owner.

Whether Jones' statement helps or hurts Elliott's case with Goodell and NFL brass remains to be seen; some at league headquarters could want to keep one of the NFL's most prominent owners happy, while others may not like Jones challenging them, no matter how high-profile his team is.

The 22-year old has been under investigation stemming from an alleged domestic violence incident that happened over a year ago. Nothing has changed his mind.

Ford says it will fight latest Takata air bag inflator recall
When the airbag is deployed, it can explode and launch metal shards which have penetrated people's eyes, face, neck, and chest. Toyota said the replacements would be safe for several years because faults only emerged as the airbags aged.

"We believe in Zeke Elliott", Garrett said about last year's fourth overall pick. "And I knew everything in that report, I knew that this time previous year. Somehow you've got to paint the picture".

That's the word from Cowboys Executive V.P. Stephen Jones, who said Prescott is committed to improving and will be better than he was as a rookie. "There is not even an issue there", he said. Under the personal conduct policy, a player can be disciplined even if he is not charged or found guilty by the justice system. "We have 90 guys on our team, sometimes they don't make the right decisions".

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the league "wants to pin something" on Elliott as a lesson for his repeated mistakes in judgment.

And he is seemingly not going to let his upcoming induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame get in the way of his battle with the NFL over Elliott.

The Athens-based Geodynamic Institute says a magnitude 4.3 quake has struck the area southeast of Greece's island of Crete. The coast guard also announced the island's port was damaged in the quake and that a ferry en route there was not docking.

Seemingly, the bigger lesson for Jones comes from Patriots owner Robert Kraft, who admittedly regretted not fighting the National Football League sanctions and penalties from the Deflategate controversy.

"I'm just amazed with how he handles himself", Jones said.

Coach Jason Garrett continues to vouch for Elliott's character, despite the two most pressing issues and older episodes of visiting a legal marijuana shop in Seattle during the preseason previous year and pulling down a woman's shirt during a St. Patrick's Day parade this past spring.
