Dallas Cowboy Team owner Jerry Jones was involved in a car accident Wednesday night in Texas.
According to Fox4 News, the incident was described as a minor and was taken to a local hospital as a precautionary measure. The 79-year-old was reportedly fine.
“He’s all right,” Cowboys Executive Vice President Stephen Jones told al Dallas morning news.
The incident occurred around 8:00 pm in Dallas, according to the paper. Jones was reportedly taken to Parkland Hospital for a brief check-up.
It is not clear how the accident happened.
The incident occurred a few days after the NFL Draft ended as Dallas tried to fill in the holes left by free agent departures.
Dallas selected offensive lineman Tyler Smith in the first round and defensive lineman Sam Williams in the second. Wide receiver Jalen Tolbert was selected in the third round and tight end Jake Ferguson in the fourth.
“I don’t think it’s a coincidence that we ended up choosing (locations) where we were selecting,” Stephen Jones said after the draft. “The good news is there are some good players you just have to figure out where the groupings will fall.”
Dallas won the NFC East with a 12-5 record and was eliminated in the wild card round of the playoffs.
