Committee to Discuss Video Boards

Members of the NFL's competition committee are to speak via conference call to discuss the issue with the video boards overhanging the field in the Dallas Cowboys' new stadium, according to the league-owned NFL Network.

A punt struck one of the video boards during a preseason game against the Tennessee Titans, causing the play to be redone.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said there was no problem with the video boards, which reportedly hang 90 feet above the field.

But Titans Coach Jeff Fisher, a co-chairman of the competition committee, said it's an issue. Punts by the Titans' two punters struck the boards repeatedly during pregame warmups.
