Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott is denying domestic violence accusations as he prepares for his first NFL training camp, but the league is set to investigate those allegations.
Immediately after the allegations surfaced, a league spokesperson wrote an email to Pro Football Talk stating the NFL is looking into the matter.
“[W]e begin a review when we become aware of a potential violation of the personal conduct policy,” league spokesman Brian McCarthy told Pro Football Talk on Friday.
It is going to be interesting to see what comes of the allegations and whether Elliott ultimately faces any punishment.
If he does, it is going to be a severely disappointing setback for the No. 4 overall pick as he looks to get his professional career off to a hot start as one of the best running backs in the league from day one.
