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 allegations against , 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 or not this season. Regardless, he called this a “big step” towards a final decision.

“A significant step in resolving the NFL's investigation came in late May, when the 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, 's Adam Schefter assured fans that their decision will not come over this weekend.

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