Ezekiel Elliott will not be punished for Vegas incident
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott will not face any punishment for a May incident in Las Vegas.
In a statement, the NFL said Elliott will not face any further discipline and did not violate the league’s personal conduct policy, but received a reminder from commissioner Roger Goodell about what is expected of him and what could happen if he fails to uphold those standards.

Ezekiel shoved a security guard to the ground in May and was briefly detained as a result, an incident which was caught on video. Elliott has already been suspended once for violating the personal conduct policy, which led to fears that he may face punishment. Ultimately, Elliott received a firm reminder from the commissioner, but it won’t impact his playing status in 2019.
