According to ESPN, it was not immediately clear if Jones was behind the wheel when the crash occurred.
Jones was transported to the hospital “out of an abundance of caution,” NFL Network’s Jane Slater reported, but he was not seriously injured.
“Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said in a text message to ESPN that his father was back home and “all good,” the outlet said.
An unnamed source relayed similar news to Yahoo Sports:
“Jones is OK,” the source said.
Jones, 79, has owned the Cowboys for more than three decades, winning three Super Bowls during that time.
He “frequently uses his helicopter to get from his home in Dallas to the team’s training complex in Frisco or AT&T Stadium in Arlington,” NBC Sports reported.
“He just spent last weekend at the team facility for the draft as the Cowboys selected nine prospects.”
According to The Associated Press, it’s just the latest development in a “tumultuous offseason” for the team.
“An ESPN report in February revealed the club paid a $2.4 million settlement to four Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders over allegations of voyeurism against a public relations director who retired a few weeks before the report,” the outlet said.
“A week later, a woman who grew up in North Texas filed a lawsuit alleging Jerry Jones is her biological father.”
