Source: Ezekiel Elliott domestic violence incident still under review, no decision expected this week

The NFL has not yet made a decision on any potential Ezekiel Elliott discipline stemming from an alleged domestic violence incident last summer, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. No announcement is expected this week.

A panel of law enforcement and judicial authorities who were present at the Dallas Cowboys running back's meeting with the league several weeks ago are currently reviewing the case, the source said. They will be providing their thoughts and perspectives to commissioner Roger Goodell, as the NFL's personal conduct policy allows the league to seek the views of external expert advisers.

In July 2016, Elliott was questioned by Columbus, Ohio, police after a former girlfriend accused Elliott of assaulting her multiple times over the course of a week. The woman told police that, in one instance, Elliott assaulted her while they sat in a parked car.

The district attorney chose not to pursue charges against Elliott because of conflicting stories. Witnesses at the scene said they did not see an assault occur.

Multiple sources close to the situation told Schefter that Elliott could face a one- or two-game suspension, but the league has denied that any decision on discipline has been made, and says it could not be made until its investigation is complete.
