The NFL is still investigating assault accusations on Ezekiel Elliott brought on by an ex-girlfriend in July, according to ESPN and he’s received additional questioning as recently as this past month.
According to the report, no resolution is expected this season and discipline could be handed down in 2017.
While the Columbus City Attorney General’s office declined to press charges against Elliott stemming from domestic violence allegations against the running back, the NFL’s investigation is reportedly ongoing.
This comes after a woman tagged Elliott on pictures on Instagram, detailing allegations against the former Ohio State Buckeye.
The woman tagged Elliott in one of the posts, and here’s the caption from the first photo:
“Just for every women out there getting abused it’s time to put a stop to it. This has been happening to me for months and it finally got out of control to where I was picked up and thrown across the room by my arms. Thrown into walls. Being choked to where I have to gasp for breath. Bruised everywhere, mentally and physically abused. It’s not okay. So I want each and everyone one of you girls to step away now from domestic violence. You’re worth so much more. I got told it was called “tough love” I’m sorry if you love someone you don’t touch your loved ones.”
Elliott’s reps told TMZ, “I can assure you [the allegations] are not true.”
Reports then came out including Elliott’s response:
Elliott ended the NFL regular season as the league’s leading rusher with over 1,600 yards on the ground.
