Dallas Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott won’t be suspended by the NFL after his Las Vegas incident.

The talented running back met with Roger Goodell yesterday after he was placed in handcuffs by police during a Vegas music festival, appeared to push a security guard and get into a heated verbal altercation with a woman.

He wasn’t charged or arrested back in May when the incident occurred.

The good news for Zeke is the league announced Wednesday afternoon that he wouldn’t face any punishment because Roger Goodell found no “violation of the personal conduct policy.”

Due to that, the league won’t suspended Elliott or do anything else.

Like I said earlier, it would have been very surprising if Elliott got suspended for the situation in Vegas. Yes, he has a history and is on thin ice, but a suspension for this Vegas situation seems like it would have been a bit too much.

Now, Elliott should stop going to music festivals and focus on just playing football. If he can do that, then there are big things on his horizon.

If not, then he’s probably going to find himself in Goodell’s office again. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that. He’s far too talented to be screwing up his career with bonehead decisions.
