ESPN insider says Ezekiel Elliott case hasn’t closed, and it may be Ray Rice’s fault


ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter was on the Cowlishaw and Dennis show on 103.3-FM ESPN Dallas this week, and the topic of Ezekiel Elliott and domestic violence allegation that's still looming large over he and the Dallas Cowboys' head.

As you may recall, the Cowboys nor the NFL have handed out a definitive punishment, if any, for the allegation and that may be because of everything that happened with former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice.

Here's what Schefter told Cowlishaw and Dennis:

"There's no doubt in my mind that that has to be a part of the league's thinking. Because there are some questions that the league has about this particular case and this particular player and this particular player's behavior. And so I think the league is being incredibly thorough and incredibly detailed because to your point, for instance, the league said today or yesterday, 'We have not found sufficient evidence to suspend Ezekiel Elliott. He will not be disciplined under the personal conduct policy."

Schefter is clear in explaining why he definitely believes what happened with Rice is on the league's mind when it comes to what they should do with Elliott.


Either way, it seems as though a decision isn't coming soon on Elliott as everyone continues to wait for the next shoe to drop.
