The domestic violence incident involving the Cowboys’ star running back remains under review and a decision on whether or not he will be suspended is not expected to come this week, ESPN reported, citing sources.
Elliott was accused of domestic violence last July by an ex-girlfriend, although he was never charged in the alleged assault and denied any wrongdoing.
The second-year rusher is also in hot water for driving 100 mph in a 70 mph zone in April and being accused of punching a DJ in a Dallas nightclub in July, although Dallas police have suspended that investigation because the accuser has not been cooperative. The league has yet to take any action against Elliott.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones revealed that Elliott met with league officials in New York regarding the incident and said he expects the NFL to imminently announce its ruling on the matter. Jones has long asserted Elliott’s innocence, recenty saying there is absolutely nothing, not one thing, that I’ve seen that has anything to do with domestic violence.
Cousins has the keys now, and he’s not going to turn this car around. There’s no question that he’s betting on himself by playing on another one-year deal, though this time around it’s different.

He can be greater than or equal to what he provided for Washington last year, which led to the NFL’s third-best Cheap Euro Jerseys total offense. If Washington takes a step back in 2017, he can point to the weapons he lost from 2016 and say that a dropoff in his own performance isn’t his fault. A team like the Jets, who have all the cap space in the world and the worst quarterback situation in the league, would not say no to Cousins and throw the Cheap Football Practice Jerseys checkbook at him.
