IRVING, Texas (AP) Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says the sexual assault investigation involving C.J. Spillman differs from other cases that have led to criticism of the league because the special teams player hasn't been arrested or charged.

Jones said on his radio show Friday that ''it becomes a different situation for us'' if police decide charges are warranted. Jones repeated coach Jason Garrett's assertion a day earlier than Spillman would remain active during the investigation.

Police say the alleged assault occurred early Sept. 20 at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Grapevine.

The report was made less than 24 hours after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell held a news conference to address the league's handling of domestic violence issues.
