'Pacman' Reinstated, Returns To Cowboys Early December
The stars couldn't have realigned at a much better time for the Cowboys. First, it was Tony Romo back in Dallas. A few days later, Adam Jones will follow suit come December.
The trouble-prone cornerback, aka "Pacman", was reinstated by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell Wednesday prompting owner Jerry Jones to reinsert the controversial player back to the lineup within the next two weeks.
The Cowboys owner said Wednesday that Jones can play on December 7 when the team travels to Pittsburgh.
The third-year West Virginia standout has to sit out the next two home games for the Cowboys-this Sunday against San Francisco and the Thanksgiving affair opposite Seattle.
The team owner refused to elaborate on the specifics behind Jones' reinstatement.
The commissioner's office also did not make any comments on the issue, though Jones said the league will release a formal statement before the weekend.
Jones last played on October 12 in a 30-24 defeat to Arizona and two days later was suspended indefinitely by the league.
The suspension stemmed from an alleged alcohol-related incident in a Dallas hotel on October 7, when he reportedly got into an altercation with one of his bodyguards tasked to monitor his behavior.
