Time to take Elliott off the field
Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott was involved in a late-night altercation at a bar in Dallas, reports Mike Fisher of 105.3 FM The Fan in Dallas.
ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter shared a statement on Twitter from Dallas police that states that officers were dispatched to a disturbance call around 9:40 pm, involving a 30-year-old male victim who stated that he was physically assaulted. According to police, the victim did not know who assaulted him, and no arrests were made.
The victim was taken to a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries. The police say the investigation is still ongoing.
Elliott would appear to be on thin ice with the NFL, currently. The 21-year-old is expected to face discipline from the league in relation to domestic abuse allegations that were made against him last season. He was also captured on video groping a woman at a recent St. Patrick's Day parade.
Schefter reports that Elliott could be looking at either a one-or two-game suspension.
In his first season with the Cowboys, Elliott lived up to the billing of being taken fourth overall in the 2016 draft. Last season, he led the NFL in rushing with 1631 yards, while adding 15 touchdowns on the ground. For his efforts, Elliott concluded his rookie campaign by being named a Pro Bowler.
