Here we go again!
Earlier this month, Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was involved in an altercation at a Las Vegas music festival where he was caught on camera, first in a verbal dispute with his girlfriend, and then confronting and bumping a security guard who fell to the ground.
Elliott was detained but no arrest was made. But that won’t stop Roger Goodell and the NFL to open yet another investigation into Zeke.
According to Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports:
The NFL is likely to review an incident involving Ezekiel Elliott and a concert security guard in Las Vegas to determine if the Dallas Cowboys running back violated the terms of previous suspension guidelines set forth by commissioner Roger Goodell, two league sources have told Yahoo Sports.
Despite that stance, a source in the NFL’s executive branch told Yahoo Sports the Las Vegas incident is “clearly” subject to review by Goodell under the league’s personal conduct policy, particularly in light of Elliott’s previous six-game suspension for alleged acts of physical abuse against an ex-girlfriend.
When asked about the incident, Cowboys owner told reporters last week that, “I don’t see that having any consequences for us.”
Despite the incident, the Cowboys still intend to work on a contraction extension for the league’s leading rusher, in hopes of keeping him in a Cowboys uniform for a long time.
