Ezekiel Elliott decision could come Friday

Elliott Incident

The decision, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, could come as early as Friday.

Florio reports a league source characterized a suspension for Elliott as "definite".

Ezekiel Elliott seems likely to be suspended for a few games this season.

National Football League insider Ian Rapoport, a respected sports reporter, said the National Football League may announce its decision on its investigation on Friday. Once regarded as one of the top three picks of fantasy drafts across all formats, Elliott could fall to the mid-to-late first round for a two game suspension, and could even drop into the early second, a la Le'Veon Bell in years past, if it is longer. No decision will be announced Thursday, Rapoport added.

The discipline could be about several things, but from what owner Jerry Jones said it would be from the incidents recently rather than the domestic abuse allegations Elliott had brought against him in 2016.

Elliott, who led the league in rushing yards last season (1,631) in his rookie year, has found himself in the center of numerous controversies over the past year.

Speaking Tuesday on FS1, Carter alleged that Elliott also could be punished for destroying evidence needed for the investigation, much like Tom Brady was punished over Deflategate.

Then, in March, Elliott was filmed pulling down a woman's shirt, exposing one of her breasts, while watching a St. Patrick's Day parade in Dallas.
