Jerry Jones health update after Dallas Cowboys owner, 79, hospitalized following car crash

DALLAS Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been hospitalized after a car crash on Wednesday afternoon.

Jones, 79, was involved in an accident about 20 miles away from the Cowboys' team facility in Dallas, Texas but police sources have said his injuries were only minor, according to reports.

After the crash in the Wolf Street and Harry Hines Blvd area, Jones was taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital for a brief checkup.

It's unclear if Jones was driving. However, by Wednesday evening, his son Stephen told ESPN that his father was back home and was "all good."

Jones was at the Cowboys' facility for the NFL Draft over the weekend.

The team passed up on top-tier prospect Lewis Cine and instead selected Tulsa offensive lineman Tyler Smith with the 24th overall pick in the draft.

At the news conference following the first round, Jones said Smith was “the leader in the clubhouse” going into the draft to be the Cowboys’ pick, even if a defensive player they liked was on the board.

Jones also declared at the news conference that his team was “very fortunate, with the 24th pick, to get the 16th player in the draft.”

The 79-year-old has owned the Cowboys since 1989.

In Jones' 33 years as owner, the Cowboys have won three Super Bowls – XXVII, XXVIII, XXX – and 12 NFC East division titles, including last season.
