According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the NFL will not announce any discipline for Ezekiel Elliott this weekend. That means Elliott's situation will remain unresolved when the Cowboys open training camp on Saturday. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero reported Friday that the NFL is nearing the end of its investigation into Elliott's troubling off-field behavior including a domestic violence incident from last year. It was reported by Schefter last week that Elliott is bracing for at least a "short suspension." That makes Zeke a risky fantasy choice inside the top five.

According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero, the NFL's investigation into Ezekiel Elliott's 2016 domestic violence incident is "nearing completion." In cooperation with the NFL Players Association, Elliott and his representatives have responded to the NFL's investigation, answering any lingering questions that had previously been unanswered. The NFL has reportedly shared its findings with Elliott as well as the NFLPA, though those familiar with the investigation are saying that the league has yet to make a recommendation on any kind of punishment. The investigation into Elliott, who has been involved in a seemingly endless string of off-field incidents since entering the league, began all the way back on July 22, 2016. Most reports are suggesting at least a short suspension for last year's NFL rushing leader, so stay tuned.

Speaking Tuesday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones declined comment on reports that Ezekiel Elliott is facing suspension. Jones said he "didn't want to speculate." Commenting on the piling up of off-the-field issues for his young star runner, Jones said Elliott is "evolving and being subject to needing to learn how to deal with the media and social media the way it is today." Online buzz is growing that Elliott could be facing a lengthy ban, but it's still just conjecture. The only option for early drafters is to sit tight.

Ezekiel Elliott is appealing a misdemeanor conviction for speeding. Elliott was allegedly clocked going 100 mph in a 70 mph zone on a tollway north of Dallas earlier this year. Elliott has also been involved in two car accidents, was caught on camera pulling down a woman's top on St. Patrick's Day, and was allegedly involved in an altercation at a Dallas bar Sunday night. All of those look like minor issues on their own, but together they raise some big concerns about his off-field decision making.

In a note to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, fellow club-goer and witness, Michael Huffman, said Ezekiel Elliott was not the one who threw the punch and knocked out a man at a Dallas-area bar Sunday night. "It didn't go down like that," said Huffman, who said he had a good view because he was close to Elliott. "Everybody is saying that, but he didn't throw the punch. ... Zeke was just standing there arms folded chilling feeling the crowd. Then I seen DJ getting loud toward the vicinity of Zeke and then I see an overhand right come over the back of Zeke shoulder that landed square in [DJ] DTrain’s face and he went to sleep. He didn't even see it. Then the crowd circled and dispersed. I'm surprised a whole video hasn’t been released yet." Take it for what it's worth. At this point, it's been a he said, she said ordeal. Video evidence is needed. Elliott still continues to put himself at the wrong place at the wrong time and needs to avoid situations like this.

Appearing on Outside the Lines, ESPN's Adam Schefter stated that the assault allegations against Ezekiel Elliott come at "bad timing" during the league's continued investigation into his off-field behavior. Per Schefter, Elliott was scheduled to issue a response to the NFL's investigation into his 2016 domestic violence incident this week. "The league is getting ready to make a ruling on his previous behavior," Schefter stated, adding that there are "various forms of discipline" to which Elliott could be subject based on his "various forms" of off-field incidents. "The bottom line is this is not the timing that Ezekiel Elliott wanted," Schefter said.
