Ezekiel Elliott could be suspended, which is great for the Eagles

Posted July 15, 2017

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting a "growing sense" Elliott is suspended for a short period of time following the league domestic violence investigation.

Mike Fisher, a Cowboys insider with 105.3 The Fan, also reported on Twitter that a Cowboys source was unaware of any upcoming suspension. While the district attorney opted to not pursue charges against Elliott due to conflicting stories, the National Football League launched its own investigation and recently submitted its findings to him.

In an investigation that has spanned almost a year, the NFL appears to be closing in on some sort of resolution involving Elliott and a possible violation of the league's personal conduct policy. Zeke Elliott still has to respond to the NFL's recent findings.

So this entire process is expected to remain ongoing for at least a couple of weeks.

The fire was at 10 percent containment late Saturday. "Hot, dry weather is expected to continue in the fire area", Cal Fire said. Authorities have said that ground and air resources have been deployed to face this blaze's "extreme fire behavior".

"I think that Zeke Elliott is bracing for a short suspension here in the coming weeks". However, they either haven't been updated or are unwilling to comment at this juncture.

Elliott was cleared of any criminal charges in the case in September, when the Columbus, Ohio city attorney's office cited conflicting witness reports of the alleged assaults. However, police announced they would not file charges shortly thereafter because Elliott had proof that the woman asked a friend to lie about what happened. He was also involved in two auto accidents - one fender bender in which he was the driver and another in which he was the passenger - the latter of which cause him to sit out the beginning of Cowboys OTAs in May.

Schefter says any suspension involving Elliott could last one or two games when all is said and done, placing the Cowboys without their best player against the Giants and potentially the Broncos in week two.
