Ezekiel Elliott Allegedly Involved in Another Off-Field Incident
The Dallas Cowboys just cannot have a quiet offseason. The team's franchise player continues to get into trouble just weeks before the start of training camp. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, running back Ezekiel Elliott was allegedly involved in an incident at a Dallas bar last night. A 30-year old man was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The man did not identify who physically assaulted him and an investigation is ongoing. This story was first reported by 105.3-FM The Fan in Dallas.
As it is, Elliott is facing a possible one or two game suspension for a 2016 domestic violence accusation against him. Schefter reported last week that the running back was preparing a response to the league. Since he was drafted in the first round by the Cowboys, Elliott has been involved in multiple off-the-field incidents that have attracted negative publicity. Last August before a preseason game against the Seahawks, Elliott was spotted walking into a weed dispensary. At a St. Patrick's Day parade in March, he pulled a woman's shirt down, exposing her bare breast.
Between suspensions to David Irving and Randy Gregory, the Cowboys have enough problems to deal with. The last thing they need now is more trouble from one of the league's best young players.
