Ezekiel Elliott is going to learn what kind of punishment, if any, is going to be handed down to him by the NFL before the start of the regular season and likely much sooner, according to NFL.com.
The Cowboys running back has been anticipating punishment coming down for the last few weeks, and, NFL.com reported, the NFL Players Association filed its response to the NFL on all of the evidence that has been submitted in their year-long investigation.
The investigation began when a woman filed a police report on Elliott on July 22, 2016, in Columbus, Ohio. The woman who claims to be Elliott’s ex-girlfriend alleged that Elliott had attacked her over several days in July of last year.
All charges were dropped, though, when investigators found that there was conflicting and incomplete information in the case.
LaVine is enjoying the finest season of his pro career. He’s Minnesota’s third-leading scorer behind center Karl-Anthony Towns (22.4 ppg) and Andrew Wiggins (22) at 19.2 points per game to go along with 3.4 rebounds and three assists while shooting a shade above 40 percent from 3- point range.
The news LaVine won’t be in the dunk conteset is particular bummer given the preview he gave us via social media, busting out a 360 from the free-throw line in a November practice.
Oh well, there will we’ll just have to remember the good times. Vince Carter’s 40th birthday. Maybe, like Sean Gentille once begged, he’ll reach back into his “Half Man, Half Amazing”/Air Canada bag and rock out like it’s 2000.
Keep your fingers crossed.
