Ezekiel Elliott Expecting To Receive Short Suspension From Domestic Violence Investigation

The Dallas Cowboys running back, who almost a year ago learned he wouldn't face criminal charges for domestic violence, is "bracing for a short suspension", ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Friday. Ezekiel Elliott still has to respond to the NFL's recent findings. Despite that, the National Football League has continued to investigate this matter, and the lengthy investigation has not surprisingly been a source of frustration for him.

"There's a growing sense that Zeke Elliott is going to face some sort of discipline and it very well could include a short suspension", Schefter said Friday morning.

Elliott is set to enter his second National Football League season after a dominant rookie campaign in 2016.

So this entire process is expected to remain ongoing for at least a couple of weeks. "I believe Elliott is bracing for a short suspension". However, they either haven't been updated or are unwilling to comment at this juncture. 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.

In all likelihood, Elliott won't miss either of the Cowboys' games against the Eagles this season. Former New York Giants kicker Josh Brown received just a one-game suspension last year after admitting to years of abusing his wife. Whatever help the Dallas Cowboys do get would likely not be a major player - McFadden and Morris would likely shoulder the brunt of the carries, so another running back would help give depth or in third-down situations, making up for some of Elliott's prowess in the passing game.
