The NFL will not be suspending Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott for an incident that occurred in May at an EDC music festival when Elliott was involved in an altercation with a security guard.

Elliott met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell earlier this week.

Some suspected that a suspension may be coming, but the NFL issued the following statement, announcing their decision to not issue a suspension to Elliott.

Immediately following reports of an incident in Las Vegas in May involving Ezekiel Elliott of the Dallas Cowboys, the NFL conducted a comprehensive investigation that included interviews with multiple witnesses, including security personnel and others with direct involvement, as well as a review of documentary and other information.

On Tuesday, as part of the review, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell met with Mr. Elliott to reinforce the standards of conduct expected of him and the consequences for failing to meet those standards.

Mr. Elliott acknowledged that he demonstrated poor judgment and committed to make better choices in the future. He volunteered to take advantage of the resources available to help him continue to grow personally.

Commissioner Goodell determined there was no violation of the personal conduct policy and no further action is warranted.
