article imageDallas Cowboys Adam 'Pacman' Jones Enters Rehab For Alcohol Addiction

By Nikki Weingartner     Oct 20, 2008 in Sports
Following a long line of criminal history and a recent fight that left the cornerback with an indefinite suspension without pay that would be reviewed after four games, Pacman Jones has entered alcohol-related rehab.
Following a letter last Tuesday from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell who called Jones' recent alcohol related fight a continuation of "a disturbing pattern of behavior and clearly inconsistent with the conditions I set for your continued participation in the NFL," the Dallas Cowboys' cornerback was suspended without pay indefinitely.
Now, a local paper in the Dallas area has released an article stating that the star has gone into rehab.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones confirms he's being treated for alcohol addiction in another part of the country but he wouldn't say where.
Although there aren't many details to reveal other than the NFL is overseeing the treatment, this is hopefully a positive mark in what has been a negative trend for the football star.
Will Jones be allowed to play? That is all contingent upon several factors, one being whether or not he complies with treatment plans.
The decision on whether Adam Jones can return to play will be based on Jones' strict compliance with NFL and Dallas Cowboys treatment plans and ongoing evaluations of Jones' progress, according to a press release from the NFL.
