The NFL’s compensation committee —which includes Giants co-owner John Mara — will hold a conference call Monday to “discuss and further push ahead the proposed extension” for Goodell, per ESPN.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that Elliott plans to train somewhere outside the United States until he can play again.
