Ezekiel Elliott leads the NFL in rushing halfway through his rookie season and the Cowboys are 6-1. However, the Cowboys running back is having problems off the field. Last week it was reported that the NFL had an ongoing investigation into claims of domestic violence by Elliott made by an ex-girlfriend over the summer.
Now USA TODAY Sports is reporting that police responded to a call from the same woman in February. She alleged that Elliott pushed her against a wall during an argument. No arrest was made.
Elliott’s agent said there was no truth to the allegations in July. On Monday Elliott’s attorney released a statement blaming the media for the NFL’s continued investigation.
