Video of Jaguars’ Fowler has ‘disturbing images’
•?The NFL says video of Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. apparently refereeing a fight between his girlfriend and the mother of his child includes “disturbing images.” Fowler took responsibility “for everything that happened” in the 30-second video released by TMZ on Tuesday. The surveillance tape shows Fowler and the two women standing outside an elevator and talking. Fowler appears to offer a hand gesture for them to start fighting and then steps back.

Fowler eventually pulls them apart. “These are disturbing images and we will review the matter,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said.
