Cowboys’ RB Ezekiel Elliot Is Reportedly ‘Bracing’ For Suspension By The NFL Over Domestic Violence Investigation
On Friday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is bracing for a “short suspension” could be out the first two weeks of the season stemming from an investigation into a 2016 domestic violence allegation.
“Ezekiel Elliott at this point in time is bracing for a short suspension,” “Maybe one game, maybe two games, but as one person told me, in quotes, ‘It looks like the NFL is trying to pin something on him.’”
Back in 2016 the Cowboys running back was accused of allegedly beating his girlfriend at the time .
Elliott was cleared of all criminal charges when the Columbus attorney’s office cited conflicting witness reports of the alleged assaults.
“After reviewing the totality of the evidence, the City Attorney’s Office, Prosecutor Division is declining to approve criminal charges in this matter for any of the (five) alleged incidents,” the City Attorney’s Office wrote in a release at the time. “This is primarily due to conflicting and inconsistent information across all incidents resulting in concern regarding the sufficiency of evidence to support the filing of criminal charges.”
