Ezekiel Elliott releases statement after meeting with Roger Goodell

Dallas Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in New York City on Tuesday. The meeting stems from Elliott’s involvement in an incident in Las Vegas in May that saw him handcuffed, but not arrested.

Following the meeting, Elliott released a rather lengthy statement and seemed to take full responsibility.

Elliott, 23, was suspended six games back in 2017 following allegations of domestic violence. He returned for a full season in 2018, putting up 2,001 total yards while leading the NFL in both rush attempts and rushing yards.

It’s not yet known whether this latest incident will lead to a suspension. But that doesn’t seem to be the case. We’ll find out soon enough.
