Ezekiel Elliott bracing for a suspension

Ezekiel Elliott eludes Green Bay Packers' defenders

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. According to Schefter, Elliott is bracing for a short suspension despite the league insisting no decision has been made regarding potential punishment.

Schefter added that the NFL's inquest isn't completed but that it is nearing the latter stages. "This thing has been dragged out".

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.

Mike Fisher, a Cowboys insider with 105.3 The Fan, also reported on Twitter that a Cowboys source was unaware of any upcoming suspension.

Elliott was cleared of any criminal charges in the case in September, when the Columbus, Ohio city attorney's office cited conflicting witness reports of the alleged assaults.

The NFL has a policy where domestic violence incidents constitute an automatic six-game suspension but the investigation is still pending on the NFL's part but Elliott is expected to respond to the NFL's recent findings in the investigation in the next few weeks. She says she's Elliott ex-girlfriend, although he claims they were just friends.

The Cowboys star running back has a motley of off the field concerns following the assault accusations, including an incident at a St. Patricks Day parade where he groped and exposed a woman. He was also involved in two vehicle accidents - one fender bender in which he was the driver and another in which he was the passenger - the latter of which cause him to sit out the beginning of Cowboys OTAs in May.
