Elliott himself casually stood on the sidelines in his Cowboys uniform wearing a blue visor Saturday evening, watching his teammates face the Los Angeles Rams.
"I admit that I am far from perfect, but I plan to continue to work very hard, on and off the field, to mature and earn the great opportunity that I have been given,'' his statement read.
Brian McCarthy, vice president of communication, said Saturday that the league's investigation into Elliott's alleged involvement in a July 16 bar fight is closed.
This is significant because a letter sent to the running back after his suspension states he "must have no further adverse involvement with law enforcement, and must not commit any additional violations of league policies."
