ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says he believes Washington owner Daniel Snyder is "way down the road" in consideration of whether the team should change its nickname.
Goodell got a question about the latest debate over the name during a question-and-answer session with Dallas season ticket-holders before the Cowboys' game Sunday night against the Redskins.
The commissioner says he knows Snyder "feels strongly" about keeping the name but "wants to do the right thing."
A small group of protesters gathered near the Cowboys' stadium hours before the game.
The Redskins were playing for the first time since President Barack Obama reignited the debate by saying he would "think about changing" it if he were the team's owner.
