Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott comments on minor fender bender

Doyle BarkerJan 18, 2017

"I would rather it not drag on this long".

A player does not have to be charged in the legal system to have run afoul of the NFL's personal conduct policy and face a suspension.

"I think it was just good to get refreshed", Elliott said this week. The police did a very thorough investigation. This isn't something that sits well with the Dallas Cowboys Running back, who said he wants "closure" after Sunday's loss to the Green Bay Packers. "Who knows, man. I'm just ready for it to end".

The NFL's investigation has gone on throughout Elliott's rookie season and ESPN reported Sunday that the league has submitted follow-up questions to Elliott within the last month.

Elliott has been dealing with these questions since training camp, but it hasn't affected his play on the field.

Elliott, who was not arrested and did not face charges related to the alleged incidents, said he was interviewed by the National Football League during the season.

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. She filed a police report after an alleged incident in the early morning hours of July 22, Elliott's 21st birthday, and later posted photos to her private Instagram account claiming she was the victim of domestic violence. He finished with 1,994 all-purpose yards and 16 touchdowns, helping Dallas earn the No. 1 seed in the NFC with a 13-3 record.
