Report: Awaiting league ruling on suspension, Ezekiel Elliott involved in bar incident
Ezekiel Elliott’s off-the-field problems continued late on Sunday night.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the former Ohio State and current Dallas Cowboys star was involved in an altercation at a Dallas bar. No arrests were made yet, according to 105.3 FM The Fan.
Schefter made sure to say that it isn’t known whether or not Elliott threw any punches, but just that he was involved in the late-night incident.
Still, Elliott is currently awaiting a league ruling on a potential suspension for a domestic violence investigation from 2016. According to Schefter, Elliott could face a one- or two-game suspension after the conclusion of the investigation.
That prompted Schefter to have an atypically animated response to the latest news regarding Elliott:

Schefter added a few other thoughts.
“This had been the week that he was supposed to respond to the report that the league had issued to him regarding the incidents of domestic violence,” Schefter said on SportsCenter. “Again, you cannot look at it as a cumulative pattern of behavior, but they start to pile up.
“We’ve got a fight now. Some sort of incident at a bar. We’ve got St. Patrick’s Day, where he pulls down a woman’s shirt and it’s captured on video. We’ve got the domestic violence accusations and we’ve got an investigation that’s gone on for over a year now where we have not gotten clarity from the NFL as to what it’s going to do regarding Zeke Elliott.
“I can tell you this. As of last week, he had been bracing for a short suspension from the NFL, but the NFL has still not made any final decisions. And when it hears this, whether that delays this investigation, delays the result, we see what happens with it, again, more questions, more smoke, more issues.”
