Jerry: Elliott Met With NFL Regarding League's Ongoing Investigation

OXNARD, Calif. – While no decision has been announced by the NFL, Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said running back Ezekiel Elliott has met with league officials in New York regarding its investigation into a July 2016 domestic violence allegation against the All-Pro running back by a former girlfriend.

"They have had their hearing and they have had all of the responses," Jones said after Saturday's training camp practice. Everything's in place to make a decision."

Jones did add, "I think anything is discretionary. At any time you can ask for more meetings, whether it's the league or whether it's Zeke."

But Elliott's scheduled meeting with league officials would seem to be a major benchmark toward completing the investigation. Jones said the visit took place in New York within the last month.

Last September, the Columbus (Ohio) City Attorney's Office announced that Elliott would not face charges. A player can still face punishment from the league under its personal conduct policy even if he is cleared of legal charges.
