INDIANAPOLIS -- Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said he doesn't expect Dante Fowler Jr., will face disciplinary action from the NFL regarding a video that shows a fight between two women connected to the second-year defensive end.

In the video posted on TMZ.com, it appears that Fowler makes no attempt to keep the women -- which the website identifies as Fowler's girlfriend and the mother of his child -- from fighting and at one point seems to act as almost a referee.

"I know the league's looking into it," Caldwell said Thursday at the NFL combine. "From the information that we have I don't expect much to come of it. We stand by our statement we released that there's no place for violence in the NFL or in society."

The NFL released a statement on Tuesday saying it was reviewing the video. Fowler released a statement that said he was embarrassed by what happened and apologized for his actions to everyone involved.

The Jaguars released a statement saying they were looking into the matter and would provide support to Fowler and his family.

"Dante's a great kid," Caldwell said. "He's got a great spirit about him. He's a young person. He's going to learn how to handle situations, I think, for the most part moving forward. He's been doing the right things and I think he's going to continue to do the right things."

Fowler, 21, was the No. 3 overall pick in the NFL draft in 2015 but suffered a torn left ACL on the first day of rookie minicamp and missed the entire season. Less than a week after the injury the Jaguars gave Fowler a four-year, fully-guaranteed contract worth $23.5 million.
