Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is expected to be suspended following a personal conduct investigation that’s dragged on for more than a year, league sources told Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.
Though Florio was describing the general feeling around the NFL about the case’s outcome, one source told him Elliott’s suspension is “definite.”
A decision could be announced as soon as Friday, according to an earlier report.
Elliott, 22, was accused of committing domestic violence in five incidents that occurred during July 2016. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, however, has suggested Elliott could be suspended for different offenses. The running back was caught on video pulling down a woman’s top at a Saint Patrick’s Day parade. He was also ticketed for speeding and was allegedly involved in a nightclub brawl this summer.
Jones said in early August that he does not expect a suspension for Elliott, though reports suggest the running back will receive a one-to-two game ban at minimum.
