Stephen Jones expects Ezekiel Elliott decision within two weeks

AP

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been saying plenty about the Ezekiel Elliott situation. The son of the team’s owner has now chimed in.

Stephen Jones recently told 105.3 The Fan in Dallas that he’d be surprised if a decision doesn’t come in the next two weeks.

His instincts are likely right. The situation already has lingered for more than a year. The league typically likes to get these issues resolved before the season begins. And if (when, perhaps) Elliott is suspended, he’ll need time to appeal it — and the Cowboys will need time to prepare for life without him, even if it’s only for a week (which would cause him to miss the Giants game) or two (which would knock him out for the Broncos game as well).

With the Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony approaching, look for plenty more to be said about what will happen with Elliott, and for even more to be said by Jerry and/or Stephen Jones if (when, perhaps) Elliott is suspended.

  1. Warren Commission (JFK assassination findings) was 888 pages long and took 10 months. How in the world has this process taken longer?

  2. As mentioned (and deleted) several times before. They wanted to be able to milk the story for all they could, so they weren’t going to hand down a decision before Jerruh’s induction.

  3. Only a matter of time before this dude is suspended again. He has a dark cloud over his head at all times. Self created of course.

    He’s a plug in guy anyway with that online.

  4. He won’t get suspended. Another year like last years, and he will become the most marketable/profitable (non-QB) player for the league.

  5. All you need to know is that one of the accuser’s witnesses showed up and said the accuser asked her to lie, and that she NEVER saw ANY domestic violence from Elliot. She went on to say that she witnessed the accuser telling Elliot that she was going to ruin his career!!! That’s why he wasn’t charged, and that’s why he SHOULDN’T be suspended. You can argue all day long that he’s stupid for pulling that other chicks top down, and maybe he put himself in a bad position with some sort of involvement in that bar fight, BUT, the domestic violence stuff never happened.

  6. Everyone not wearing ‘fan googles’ understands that he should get some sort of suspension.

  7. It went from imminent to “2 more weeks”, well Jerry did basically say he was gonna try to interfere with the investigation, that would certainly cause delays.

    Also what’s with the new format? Does this mean they’ll also bring back the ticketing system for comments to find out why they were deleted? There’s currently no way right now, nor is there anything that even lists what the rules are.

  8. Hopefully the league gets it right and suspends him at least 1-2 games. Did he commit a crime? Maybe not specifically, but pulling down a woman’s top in public (guilty as seen on camera which is indecent exposure), having his name arise in bar altercations, along with speeding tickets isn’t a good look for this guy. It’s like he wants to get in trouble, that’s how the cowboys spell leadership I guess. #StayClassyGirls

  9. So the one thing was dropped, the other stuff is a “culmination” of things, something about a woman’s shirt and maybe a speeding ticket… And so what exactly would this suspension be for, again?

  10. Any other team and he’d have been suspended already and forced to miss valuable practice time. Since the NFL has to protect the Jones family, he gets to practice before his mini-vacation.

  11. Hope he gets 6 games.

    Remember when all 31 other teams and owners were pressuring Goodell to use his un-checked power to hammer the Pats and Brady for a made up “scandal”.

    As I said at the time, wait until it’s your team. The time has come and it’s time to pay the piper.

    “Everyone not wearing ‘fan googles’ understands that he should get some sort of suspension”

    Every Cowboy fan understands you are a full-on hater (& likely a closet Cowboy lover), and even those who are not Cowboy fans (but are football fans in general) can see the hippocracy in this “investigation”. If you are going to suspend him for pulling the girl’s shirt down, so be it. Otherwise, Move the **** on.

    This from Rotoworld sums it up well:

    It is ridiculous how long this decision has dragged on, but the ludicrousness would jump to another level if the NFL allows the situation to linger into the season. Roger Goodell is reportedly “waiting for outside advisors to finish (their) work,” but as Martavis Bryant can attest, leaving players twisting in the wind is simply how the NFL does business.

    When was he suspended the first time? Ignorance.

    For what? Take off your “hater goggles” and tell us why. And I don’t see any felons on the roster, yet I keep reading from these keyboard warriors the Cowboys are full of them. We all know the NFL is a joke when it comes to player discipline, but what’s even more of a joke are these posters regurgitating old clichés and catch phrases that weren’t funny when you were 12 let alone now.

  15. Some real funny posts on here! If the Cowboys weren’t constantly linked to off field issues (which is a fact), this story (and potential domestic violence charge) wouldn’t be nearly as funny. Look at the number of suspensions looming for 2017 already. They are well ahead of every other team. Where there smoke………

  16. I don’t know what’s going to take longer the Russian probe or the Zeke Elliott investigation………………

  17. The league is waiting for his old man the snake oil salesman to have his 30 minutes inmthe sun and then BOOM

  18. How is it that he could only miss a couple of games for laying his hands on a woman, but someone like Ray Rice is banned from the league forever after doing the same thing?

  19. No worries Jerry has more money then God and he sleeps with Goodell …….Zeke will probably get a 1/2 game suspension a slap on the ace and a verbal warning!!!

    If it were one of my Raiders it would be a 10 game suspension and jail time >>>>???????????

    LMAO

  20. “# witch hunt.”

    Haven’t you been paying attention the last 10 years? Witch hunts are one of the things Goodell and his cronies are good at.
