Last week Adam Jones got into a fight with his own personal bodyguards that were hired for him by Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Today, Roger Goodell suspended Adam Jones indefinitly.
Jones was just reinstated into the league prior to the opening game of the 2008 season, after serving a one year suspension in 2007. There is not doubt it will be difficult for Adam Jones to come back after this most recent suspension. Goodell has said he will consider reinstating Jones once he undergoes treatment for alcohol and receives progressive reports from doctors. Jones must serve a four game suspension at minimum.
The 2008 season cannot get any worst for the Dallas Cowboys who are already missing two players in their secondary (Williams, and Newman) due to injury, now Jones will be gone at least four games. This means the an already strained secondary will call upon several young players to take on large roles to keep the team afloat. Add into the mix Tony Romo’s broken pinkie and the Cowboys are looking at a long upward battle.
