NFL Notes: Jerry Jones, Browns, Cardinals

Jerry Jones

Mark Maske of the Washington Post spoke with one NFL owner and several others familiar with the situation who all said that the NFL will not attempt to force Jerry Jones to sell the Cowboys over his efforts to shut down extension talks for commissioner Roger Goodell.

“I don’t know where this is coming from about stripping him of his franchise,” the owner told Maske on Thursday. “That’s ridiculous. That’s not going to happen.”

However, Jones could still be subject to a fine if he brings a lawsuit against the NFL. Beyond that, Jones may have to pay the legal costs for both parties, based on NFL rules.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk first reported that multiple NFL owners already have been discussing the possibility of invoking the procedure for Jones to forfeit the Cowboys (NFLTR).

The report has since been confirmed by other media outlets.

Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist, injured reserve) tells Josh Weinfuss of ESPN that he’s “making progress” with his return from a wrist injury, but it’s still “pretty weak.

“I’m pretty stiff,” Johnson said. “I’m still getting the range of motion.

“Still pretty weak, but I’m making progress.”

Johnson admitted that he feels like he let the team down this year.

A season where I could get better, help out the team especially,” Johnson said. “I feel like I let the team down, let a lot of people down. I’m going to be down on myself, for sure. It’s going to really motivate me in the offseason again because I had the knee injury [at the end of last season].

“I was excited to come back this year.
