Jerry Jones Comments On Domestic Allegation Against Ezekiel Elliott

Jerry Jones has commented on the domestic violenceallegation made against his team's first-round draft pick, Ezekiel Elliott.

Last week, the former Ohio State running back's ex-girlfriend posted photos of her bruised body on Instagram and tagged Elliott in the post.

Elliott has since denied the allegations, posting to Twitter and saying that he has evidence saved in his phone that proves his innocence.

Jones, in Oxnard, Calif. at the start of Dallas Cowboys' training camp, said the franchise has seen nothing that would contradict Elliott's side of the story.

The NFL and the Columbus city attorney have said they will be investigating the allegations made by Elliott's ex-girlfriend.

Elliott, 21, is expected to be the team's starting running back. He's been practicing with the first-team offense during OTAs and mandatory minicamp. With Darren McFadden injured and possibly out for a portion of the early regular season (he thinks he'll be ready), it appears that Dallas will really rely on the former Ohio State star.

The Cowboys arrived in Oxnard, Calif. for training camp on Thursday and will hold an opening ceremony on Saturday. The team's first practice is set for Sunday.

Dallas opens the preseason on Saturday, Aug. 13 against the Los Angeles Rams. The game will kick off at 8 p.m. E.T. and be televised on ESPN.

The team starts the regular season on Sunday, Sept. 11 against the New York Giants. That game will kick off at 4:25 p.m. E.T. and be televised on FOX.
