     UNDATED (AP) - Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says his objection to a contract extension for NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is not because of star running back Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension over alleged domestic violence. Jones said on his radio show Friday he wants all 32 owners to have a chance to approve the deal being negotiated between Goodell and the compensation committee that includes six owners. Jones is not on the committee.
 
     The NFL has said owners voted unanimously in May to extend Goodell's contract and authorize the committee to work out the deal. Jones said circumstances have changed since then, including the escalation of the protests involving the national anthem. Jones also said "behavioral policies" have been an issue since May. Elliott was suspended in August.
 
     In other NFL news:
 
     - The NFL confirmed it is reviewing whether the Seattle Seahawks followed proper concussion protocol with quarterback Russell Wilson. An NFL spokesman said Friday that the league is conducting a "thorough review" of whether the Seahawks followed the protocols when Wilson was sent off the field in the third quarter of Seattle's 22-16 win over Arizona Thursday night. He was hit in the chin by Karlos Dansby, who was flagged for roughing the passer. Wilson was in Seattle's injury tent for only a few moments and he missed just one play.
 
     - New York Jets wide receiver Jermaine Kearse says the NFL should get rid of Thursday night games because they are detrimental to players' health. Kearse was asked about the short weeks after he watched former Seattle teammate Richard Sherman suffer a season-ending Achilles tendon injury in the Seahawks' win against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday night. The veteran receiver says games on Thursday nights aren't helpful because of the short recovery time after playing on Sunday.
 
     - The Detroit Lions have released injured offensive tackle Greg Robinson, clearing a spot for Taylor Decker's potential return. Detroit acquired Robinson in a trade with the Los Angeles Rams last summer after Decker had a shoulder injury. Robinson started the first six games of the season before having an ankle injury.
 
     - New York Jets running back Matt Forte (for-TAY') has been ruled out against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday because of swelling in his surgically repaired right knee. Forte hasn't practiced all week. He says he has been playing with swelling in the knee for a while and it needs to subside before he suits up for practice. The Jets have a bye week after Sunday, so he'll be able to get extra rest before New York plays again on Nov. 26 against Carolina.
 
     - The New York Giants will be without linebackers B.J. Goodson, Devon Kennard and Keenan Robinson for this weekend's game against the 49ers in San Francisco. Cornerback Donte Dayeon is doubtful, while linebacker Calvin Munson and defensive end Kerry Wynn are questionable.
 
     - Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker is questionable for Sunday's game with the Cincinnati Bengals due to a bone bruise in his ankle. Walker was limited Friday after missing the Titans' Wednesday and Thursday practice sessions. He injured the ankle Oct. 22 at Cleveland.
 
     - Los Angeles Rams star Aaron Donald has been unanimously selected as the NFL's No. 1 defensive tackle by an Associated Press panel of voters. The voting released Friday was done by Hall of Fame receiver James Lofton and 10 AP football writers. The two-time All-Pro pick has 32 sacks in 55 career games.

     UNDATED (AP) - Former Colorado manager Walt Weiss, who completed his playing career with Atlanta in 2000, is returning to the Braves as a bench coach. Weiss led the Rockies to a 283-365 record as manager from 2013-16.
 
     Atlanta also is adding Eric Young Sr. as first base and outfield coach and Sal Fasano as catching coach. Hitting coach Kevin Seitzer, assistant hitting coach Jose Castro, bullpen coach Marty Reed, pitching coach Chuck Hernandez and third base coach Ron Washington will return to manager Brian Snitker's staff.
 
     Former bench coach Terry Pendleton and first base coach Eddie Perez have been offered other positions.
 
     In other baseball news:
 
     - Former Cleveland and Seattle manager Eric Wedge has become the second person to interview with the New York Yankees for their dugout opening. Yankees bench coach Rob Thomson interviewed on Wednesday as a possible successor to manager Joe Girardi.
 
     - Justin Upton has been voted Tiger of the Year despite being traded by Detroit with a month remaining in the season. Upton received 15 of 26 first-place votes from the Detroit chapter of the Baseball Writers' Association of America. Upton hit .279 with 28 home runs and 94 RBIs in 125 games for the Tigers before the outfielder was dealt to the Los Angeles Angels on Aug. 31.
 
     - Highly touted Japanese pitcher-outfielder Shohei Otani will be posted by the Nippon Ham Fighters, according to Kyodo News, allowing him to sign with a major league team next season. Otani is the reigning Pacific League MVP and is 3-2 with a 3.20 ERA this year. Despite thigh and ankle injuries, he batted .332 in 65 games with 16 doubles, eight homers and 31 RBIs. He had ankle surgery last month. He has a 42-15 record with a 2.52 ERA and 624 strikeouts in 543 innings over five seasons, and a .286 batting average with 48 homers and 166 RBIs.
