Ezekiel Elliott’s first NFL game was full of adventure. It was a little too much adventure for Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

A TMZ video showed that Elliott visited a legal marijuana store in Seattle before his first preseason game. The former Ohio State star even stopped to take a picture with a fan outside the store.

It didn’t matter to Jones that he reportedly didn’t buy anything. He still said that Elliott’s visit was “not good.”

On Monday, Elliott addressed the situation that got him in hot water with the organization.

“I was curious,” Elliott said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I didn’t think I was doing anything wrong. I wasn’t breaking any laws or anything. It was a bad decision. It was something I shouldn’t have done. But I know now. … You definitely got to think of the perception of things before you actually do certain things. It may not seem like a big deal to you yourself but there is a bigger picture.

“It’s definitely a learning experience about the scrutiny. You just got to be careful and not give anyone a chance to say anything.”

While the store might have been legal and a common stop for Seattle tourists, the NFL has an anti-marijuana policy. Elliott’s admission of a poor decision was expected.

An ESPN report from Ed Werder said that the Cowboys were concerned about Elliott’s “pattern of behavior.” Elliott is still involved in a domestic violence case for an incident that allegedly took place in Columbus last month.

Elliott will make his actual NFL debut when the Cowboys host the New York Giants on Sept. 11.
