Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott looks to be one of the best players in the NFL going into the 2016 season, but it looks like he could have some off-field troubles to deal with. It looks like his girlfriend has accused him of domestic abuse after posting photos to her private Instagram account.
Deadspin obtained the photos of bruises on her neck, arms and legs and claimed that it had been going on “for months.” In her second post, she directly tagged Elliott, making her accusations pretty clear.
TMZ received a copy of the police report detailing an incident where Tiffany Thompson accused Elliott of assault while she was sitting in her car. The running back was not arrested at the time because witnesses say they saw nothing of the sort.
They also reported that they reached out to Ezekiel Elliott’s agent, but they also vehemently denied the claims of the assault.
“I can assure you [the allegations] are not true,” one agent said.
