Reports emerged Monday morning that Ezekiel Elliott of the Dallas Cowboys was involved in an altercation at a Dallas bar on Sunday.

That report has been confirmed by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Schefter also tweeted this statement from the Dallas police department with regards to the incident:

It had been previously reported that Elliott might be facing a short (one- to two-game) suspension pending the conclusion of the NFL’s investigation into the domestic violence allegations.

The suspension is regarded as a potential “break” for the New York Giants, who face the Cowboys in a week one, prime time, match-up.

(It should also be noted that promising young defensive end David Irving will already be serving a four game suspension for PED use.)

Giants fans have heard much regarding the “distraction” of Odell Beckham Jr., who has been seen in the off-season with musician (and friend) Drake, court-side at the NBA finals, and elsewhere. Not to mention his flair for the dramatic (and distracting) on the field (and sidelines) during the game.

But whatever — potentially unwanted — attention Beckham may draw to himself, he has never had the kinds of legal issues that Elliott has had.
