Jerry Jones, the 79-year-old billionaire owner of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys franchise, was reportedly hospitalized following a car accident on Wednesday night. Police say that Jones’ injuries were “not serious” and that he was taken to the hospital for “precautionary reasons.”
At this time, it is not clear whether or not Jones was driving the vehicle, or if he was a passenger.

In a text message to ESPN’s Todd Archer, Jerry Jones’ son Stephen Jones, who serves as the Cowboys’ executive vice president, said that his father is “all good.”
Since buying the Dallas Cowboys in 1989, Jones has won three Super Bowls as the team’s owner, although it’s famously been close to 30 years since the team won its last title. The Cowboys were one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl in 2021, however, they lost at home to the San Francisco 49ers during the Wild Card round of last season’s NFL playoffs.
This upcoming season, the Cowboys have the eighth-best odds to win Super Bowl 57, trailing the Buffalo Bills, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Kansas City Chiefs, Green Bay Packers, Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos, and Los Angeles Chargers. At this time, their odds are in the neighborhood of +1700.
