Ezekiel Elliott Could Be Facing Possible Suspension From NFL

15 July 2017

The NFL has yet to conclude its investigation into allegations of domestic violence against Ezekiel Elliott, and there remains a legitimate possibility the Dallas Cowboys running back could still face a suspension.

The basis for this investigation appears to be two separate claims of assault against the Cowboys' running back by the same OH woman last season.

The allegation against Ezekiel Elliott came from an incident past year in Columbus, Ohio, when a woman identified as Elliott's girlfriend at the time claimed that the running back assaulted her while they sat in a auto together, Bleacher Report noted.

The investigation is still ongoing, but Schefter says there is a "growing sense" Elliott will miss at least one game.

"The NFL is looking to pin something on him", said another source familiar with the investigation on Ezekiel Elliott's alleged domestic violence.

Jimmy Carter taken to Canadian hospital
Global News cameras saw the 92-year-old former president stop working and say "I'm tired" before a chair was provided to him. Habitat for Humanity pledged to build 150 homes in Canada to mark the country's 150 anniversary of confederation.

Obviously the Cowboys would be in a tight spot if Elliott is suspended at the beginning of this upcoming season. The Cowboys have veterans Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris behind Elliott on the roster, but they are expected to bring in more help - for competition and depth in training camp if nothing else. A complaint filed in OH also shows texts from Elliott's ex asking a friend to tell police she was pulled out of a auto.

As Pro Football Rumors noted, the Cowboys could likely use help to start their season. Keep in mind the Dallas Cowboys open with the New York Giants and then the Denver Broncos.

Elliott is entering his second year after a banner rookie season.

Now riding the Cowboys bench behind Elliott are veterans Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris. Elliott was named first-team All-Pro and made the Pro Bowl.
