Ezekiel Elliott could face 'short suspension'

Dallas Cowboys: Predicting Zack Martin's impending contract extension

Dallas Cowboys: Predicting Zack Martin's impending contract extension

In July 2016, Zeke Elliott was questioned by Columbus, Ohio, police officers after a former girlfriend asserted an incident in which Zeke forcibly pulled her out of a vehicle.

Elliott has been under investigation by the National Football League for nearly a year now, specifically pertaining to a pattern of alleged abuse over the span of several days in July 2016, after which Elliott's girlfriend filed a report with police.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Friday that "there's a growing sense" Elliott could face "some sort of short suspension here in the coming weeks at some point, once the National Football League wraps up its investigation".

The league has never provided a timeline for the investigation into Elliott's ex-girlfriend's claims that he hit her on five different occasions between July 17-22 of previous year.

Several witnesses however would come out later to deny any assault by Elliott to her and numerous reports would end up conflicting with the victim's story and charges would end up being dropped due to "conflicting and inconsistent information" according to reports by ESPN.com's Jean-Jacques Taylor. She alleged Elliott attacked her while they were in a auto.

Four witnesses said they didn't see an assault take place, and the running back did not face charges due to "conflicting and inconsistent information", according to ESPN.com's Jean-Jacques Taylor. In his rookie season, the running back led the league with 1,631 yards on 322 carries past year, scoring 15 touchdowns. He had an NFL-best 1,631 rushing yards, 15 rushing touchdowns and 32 catches for 363 yards with one receiving touchdown. He made the NFL All-Pro first team for his efforts. And it sounds like their findings very well might leave the Cowboys without their star running back for a game or two this year.
