Elliott has the support of the Cowboys brass as coach Jason Garrett and owner Jerry Jones each voiced their support Sunday in Oxnard, Calif.
“There is absolutely nothing, not one thing, that I’ve seen that has anything to do with domestic violence,” Jerry Jones, who will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Aug. 5, said of the allegations against Elliott. “I don’t want to answer any more. But I’ve seen nothing.”
Elliott was never charged in the alleged 2016 assault, but that’s not the only issue Elliott has had off the field. He is appealing an April speeding ticket for going 100 mph in a 70-mph zone and stands accused of punching a nightclub DJ last weekend in Dallas, though Dallas police have suspended that investigation because the accuser has not been cooperative.

Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas may be an even bigger All-Star snub than Russell Westbrook at this point. Thomas’ latest act of heroics was a 38-point performance in a clutch 120-109 win over the Rockets. Thomas also had nine assists and five rebounds.
