Speaking on the pregame show on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas before the Cowboys played the Los Angeles Rams , Jones offered the organization's first statement since Elliott's suspension was announced.
At the same time, we understand the very, very, very serious nature of domestic violence, certainly that people should be held accountable if that takes place."
Owner and general manager Jerry Jones is not expected to meet with the media after Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Rams.
The suspension comes as a result of an investigation that started more than a year ago after an ex-girlfriend accused Elliott of domestic violence in Columbus, Ohio.
Elliott, the league's leading rusher last season, is planning to appeal the suspension.
