Cowboys owner Jerry Jones backs Ezekiel Elliott amid domestic violence investigation

"There is not even an issue there", he said.

This is a bold statement of support by the elder Jones, who has refused to comment about the situation recently.

Dallas police have suspended their investigation because they have not been able to locate the victim and no witnesses have come forward.

Both Jones and Garrett spoke with Elliott on Friday before the team left Texas for training camp in California. "It's incumbent upon all of us, everybody in our organization — coaches, players, everybody who is connected with Zeke — to help him understand the importance of making good decisions".

"If guys make mistakes, coaches make mistakes, players make mistakes we address them.We address them relative to standards that we have", said Jason Garrett, Cowboys Head Coach.

The Cowboys arrived in California after an array of issues the past few weeks.

While Elliott's status for the start of the season is still up in the air, Dallas is already preparing to begin the year without David Irving and Randy Gregory. Linebacker Damien Wilson was arrested July 4 on charges of assault with a deadly weapon. Rookie cornerback Jourdan Lewis is not with the team, as he has a misdemeanor domestic violence court case set for Monday.

"I found nothing (new) since we were standing here at this time a year ago", Jones said.

"We love the character of our team". It's disappointing, but you have to deal with it. We'll have to do the same thing, and we'll move forward from there. "Loving someone as much as I did, putting my all in no matter what happened".
