"He's a fun guy to be around. He brings that sort of energy and excitement in the locker room. I'm sure that's pent up being away for six weeks."
  • After an ugly three-game skid, Dallas pulled away for a 38-14 victory over Washington to improve to 6-6 and remain alive in the postseason chase.
  • After a tumultuous week that ended with receiving his Hall of Fame ring while the Cowboys were blown out at home, we're reminded of how the owner of football's signature franchise has fallen short.
  • The National Football League accused Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones of trying to sabotage its contract negotiations with commissioner Roger Goodell, calling his conduct “detrimental to the league’s best interests.” The tension has grown so severe that the topic of removing Mr. Jones has been discussed by at least some owners, according to people familiar with the matter. That type of drastic action would require the league showing conduct detrimental to the league—which is exactly the language the league used in a letter sent to Mr. Jones’s attorney, David Boies, on Wednesday.
  • Some NFL owners are urging league leaders to consider penalties against Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones if Jones continues his attempts to block the completion of Commissioner Roger Goodell's contract extension, according to two people with knowledge of the deliberations. If Jones is deemed guilty of conduct detrimental to the league, potential penalties include a fine, loss of a draft pick or picks for the Cowboys or a suspension, according to those people, who spoke under the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the topic.
  • The Dallas Cowboys (4-3) outlasted the Washington Redskins (3-4) in a rain-soaked NFC East battle that came down to field goals and who had more towels readily available. Here's what we learned from the Cowboys' 33-19 win:
  • A federal appeals court overturned a district court's decision in the Ezekiel Elliott case Thursday, meaning the Dallas Cowboys running back's six-game suspension has been reinstated. The 5th Circuit ruled 2-1 in favor of the NFL that the district court did not have subject matter jurisdiction in Elliott case after hearing oral arguments from the league and NFL Players Association lawyers earlier this month. It vacates the preliminary injunction and directs an order to the lower court to dismiss the case.
  • A U.S. District Court judge in Texas has granted the NFLPA's request for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction to prevent the implementation of RB Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension.
  • What happens now that an arbitrator has upheld Zeke's suspension? All your burning questions on the next steps in the process answered here.
  • Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy has been upheld by an arbitrator. Despite the decision, Elliott is eligible to play Week 1 against the Giants.
  • Ezekiel Elliott's fate rests with league-appointed arbitrator Harold Henderson, who has yet to rule on whether the Cowboys running back will face a six-game suspension related to domestic assault allegations, or if that suspension will be reduced or dropped altogether. The NFL Players Association was concerned enough to file a temporary restraining order against the league for the express purpose of "prevent[ing] the National Football League from enforcing the six-game suspension imposed by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell."
  • The league’s effort to downplay witness credibility issues in the Ezekiel Elliott case hinges exclusively on forensic and medical evidence that purports to corroborate the conclusion that Elliott committed multiple acts of domestic violence against Tiffany Thompson in July 2016. But the forensic and medical evidence in no way trumps the core question of whether Elliott or Thompson is telling the truth.
  • Dane Brugler: "It's tough because I think you look at some of the other players in that range, they didn't have a chance at Joey Bosa -- he went one pick ahead -- but there were some questions about him. Jalen Ramsey, the corner from Florida State who, the way he played last year as a rookie, he's on his way to being a top-10, maybe even eventually a top-five corner in this league. So the early returns on the top five picks from the draft are very encouraging, but with Zeke, you know, I'm not willing to say that it was the wrong pick, especially over some of these other talented players that went in the top five that year, but he has to get his head on straight.
  • On Aug. 11, the NFL finally announced a six-game suspension for Ezekiel Elliott to start this season, after an investigation spanning more than a year. The suspension stems from domestic violence allegations made against Elliott in July 2016. A woman who identified herself as Elliott’s ex-girlfriend filed a police report claiming Elliott had been abusive over the course of five days in July 2016. She filed two separate reports with the Columbus Police Department. Witnesses who claimed to have been present did not corroborate her statements, and police and prosecutors decided not to bring charges against Elliott.
  • The woman who accused Dallas Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott of domestic violence admitted to NFL investigators having a text exchange in which she discussed leveraging sex videos featuring her and Elliott for money from the player, according to documents obtained by Yahoo Sports.
