Ezekiel Elliott Reportedly Faces 'Short' Suspension in Domestic Violence Probe

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. A few weeks ago, he hinted at potential discipline heading Elliott's way.

Adam Schefter reported on ESPN today that Elliott and people around him are starting to conclude that the National Football League is going to suspend Elliott for the start of the season. But it is definitely far along into the process.

The investigation is still ongoing, but Schefter says there is a "growing sense" Elliott will miss at least one game.

Federer books Berdych in Wimbledon semi-final
Roger Federer is in the Wimbledon semifinals for the 12th time. "The body didn't really allow me to play, in my opinion". Federer , the pre-tournament favourite, is just three wins away from winning an unprecedented seventh Wimbledon title.

Still waiting: Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott still hasn't gotten a decision from the National Football League on whether he'll be punished for a 2015 domestic violence accusation. But I think that Zeke Elliott is bracing for a short suspension here in the coming weeks. Former New York Giants kicker Josh Brown received just a one-game suspension last year after admitting to years of abusing his wife. 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. Sports Illustrated wrote about it in detail past year.

In an investigation that has spanned almost a year, the NFL appears to be closing in on some sort of resolution involving Elliott and a possible violation of the league's personal conduct policy. And it sounds like their findings very well might leave the Cowboys without their star running back for a game or two this year.
