Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott was involved in a minor two-car accident close to the team's headquarters on Wednesday morning, but the rookie was not injured. Elliott said he was interviewed by the NFL during the season, but the league's investigation is not complete as it seeks more information. The police did a very thorough investigation. It is important to note that the National Football League does not need a legal conviction to suspend a player, though he would then be able to appeal the suspension if one was eventually handed out. It just seems like they're dragging their feet right now.
The league submitted a series of follow-up questions to the rookie in the last month and he is still in the process of responding to them. "Who knows, man? I just want it to end". When Hyde moved on to the NFL, Elliott kept the move going after big plays for the Buckeyes.
Elliott is answering those inquiries, though resolution is expected to come after the season, with any potential punishment to be levied for the 2017 campaign.More news: Luxottica and Essilor sees eye-to-eye in merger
Elliott, 21, has been cleared of any legal wrongdoing after the Columbus, Ohio city prosecutor's office determined there wasn't enough substance to pursue charges after a lengthy investigation of its own.
Back in July, Zeke's ex tagged him in pictures on Instagram of her banged up arms. He insists he did nothing wrong.
Elliott, the fourth overall pick out of Ohio State, rushed for 125 yards on 22 carries in the loss to the Packers.
