NFL Still Reviewing Allegations Against Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that while the NFL closed their investigation into free agent CB Darrelle Revis in recent days, their investigation into Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott “remains under review.

The NFL has been looking into five alleged incidents that occurred over a stretch of six days last July and the alleged incident that occurred a few months before that.

Last we heard, Adam Schefter reported that the NFL had submitted follow-up questions to Elliott in regards to the assault accusations made by his ex-girlfriend last summer and he was still in the process of responding to them

However, that was back in January and there hasn’t been an update until now.

Elliott, 21, was taken with the No. 4 overall pick by the Cowboys back in May. He signed four-year contract worth $24,956,342, which includes a signing bonus of $16,350,068. The contract also includes a fifth-year option for the team to consider in 2019.

This season, Elliott has appeared in 12 games for the Cowboys and rushed for 1,285 yards on 233 carries (4.9 YPC) to go along with 28 receptions for 322 yards receiving and 13 total touchdowns.

We’ll have more regarding Elliott and the ongoing investigation as the news is available.
