The 48-hour deadline Cris Carter promised Monday on FS1 has come and gone, but according to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, the NFL indeed plans to suspend Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott sometime in the very near future.
“It may come Friday, it could be bumped into next week,” Florio wrote late Thursday night , adding that he has one league source telling him that the suspension is “definite,” though he doesn’t say how long the punishment will last.
Fisher reported late Thursday that the NFL has completed the paperwork involved with the investigation and will issue its ruling Friday.
Elliott’s ex-girlfriend accused him of five incidents of domestic violence over a six-day period in July 2016, though prosecutors in Columbus, Ohio, declined to press charges because of “conflicting and inconsistent information” from witnesses.
Then, in March, Elliott was filmed pulling down a woman’s shirt , exposing one of her breasts, while watching a St. Patrick’s Day parade in Dallas.
