Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett says the Cowboys will not wait for due process in domestic violence cases.
Garrett said if one of his players are charged with domestic violence, they will not play in any games.
"Part of what our jobs are as coaches is to create the right environment for our players to function both on and off the field," Garrett said, via the Dallas Morning News' Brandon George. "So we need to be clear about where we are. We need to be clear that we have a structure in place to help anybody who has any off-the-field issues.
The NFL has seen it's share of domestic violence in the first part of the season. The 49ers defense lineman Ray Mcdonald was arrested on a domestic violence charge in August and the team still allowed him to practice and play.
On the flip side the Minnesota Vikings and Carolina Panthers placed their respected players (Adrian Peterson, and Greg Hardy) on the NFL exempt list to allow due process.
