And the NFL has opened another investigation on Dallas Cowboys running back, Ezekiel Elliott. The league’s leading rusher in 2016 was present at a bar called Clutch on Sunday night when an altercation broke out and the DJ was punched, breaking his nose. Speculations flew that Elliott may have been the one to throw the punch, but the victim told Dallas Police he wasn’t aware of who hit him. Police did not name Elliott as a suspect, though conflicting witness reports have emerged with some saying they saw Elliott hit the 30-year-old man, while others say it wasn’t him.
