Jerry Jones plans for fans to attend Cowboys games this fall

On the same day that the Washington Football Team became the latest NFL franchise to declare that fans won't be permitted to attend home games this fall because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones remained committed to allowing some number of spectators if AT&T Stadium hosts contests in 2020.

Per NFL Network's Jenn Slater, Jones addressed the matter while speaking with reporters on Wednesday.

Jones added that he isn't yet prepared to set an attendance number or capacity.

Individuals associated with the University of Texas have routinely stated that they'd like to fill Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium up to 50% percent capacity if the Longhorns play, as scheduled, this fall. 

Meanwhile, the New York Giants, New York Jets and Las Vegas Raiders are among clubs that have announced they will play behind closed doors because of the uncontrolled virus outbreak. 

The New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins, Baltimore Ravens and Green Bay Packers hope to fill stadiums at reduced capacities, but the Packers have prohibited fans from the club's first two home fixtures of the 2020 campaign. 

The Los Angeles Rams are planning for "limited or no capacity" this year.
