Fox Sports has removed a controversial comment from a video about the Dallas Cowboys.

The network said in a statement that the video was edited to remove a comment by Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott that was not in line with the company’s “zero tolerance” policy.

FoxSports.com and ESPN.com have been unable to reach Elliott or his agent for comment.

Elliott’s comment, posted last week, referenced a photo of the team’s home opener, and he was seen kneeling during the anthem in the video.

In the video, he said, “I’m not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

Elliot has been fined $25,000 by the NFL for his comments, which drew a large backlash from players, fans and the NFLPA.

The Cowboys said last week that Elliott would not be suspended.
