Report: NFL Wraps Up Investigation Into Ezekiel Elliott, NFLPA Responds

According to, the NFL Players Association has recently filed their final response to the league’s official investigation into the domestic violence allegations against Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, dating back to last July.

The investigation is nearing completion, according to Ian Rappaport, who further said that it still remains rather unclear whether Elliott will face a suspension or not this season. Regardless, he called this report a “big step” towards a final decision.

“A significant step in resolving the NFL’s investigation came in late May, when the NFLPA complied with a longstanding request to turn over phone records and other documents that league investigators had been seeking. The NFL generally tries to close these cases before the calendar gets too close to the start of the regular season in September out of fairness to clubs. Any discipline would be subject to appeal by Elliott.”

While this news does seem to indicate the league is close to reaching a final decision on what to do about the allegation towards Elliott, ESPN’s Adam Schefter assured fans that their decision will not come over this weekend.

NFL will not announce any possible Ezekiel Elliott discipline today, nor this weekend. Cowboys report to camp Saturday with matter pending.

With Cowboys training camp opening tomorrow, and the beginning of the 2017 NFL preseason just weeks away, the Cowboys must certainly be hoping the league comes to a decision on Elliott sooner rather than later.

    I feel like the NFL has been using this situation to maintain league interest during the down time of the offseason.

    Sure it gets boring between the draft and OTAs and OTAs and Training Camp, but everyone is still talking about your product. Figure this mess out already.

  • Mike Thaxton

    The real question should be is when is somebody going to look back to that draft and see that happened before the draft because when the Boys picked Zeke the talking heads mentioned the DV case which means it already happened before the draft ! I dont understand how the truth got shoved to the side for a lie that seems to be a attempt to railroad Zeke and the Boys
