On Thursday, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones expressed confidence that the NFL’s decision on whether to suspend running back Ezekiel Elliott was imminent. As it turns out, it’s not going to be so imminent, after all.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, no decision will be reached on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.

This has certainly been one of the NFL’s most dominant storylines.

The Cowboys have stood firm behind their running back. Jason Garrett has given nothing but support, while Jones has said that the NFL’s report on Elliott’s incident shows no evidence of domestic violence. Despite that, Dallas is reportedly readying itself for the possibility of a suspension.

While a decision may not be reached by the weekend, one should be made relatively quickly. Continuing this holding pattern doesn’t seem to do any good for anyone.
