NFL: Preseason-Houston Texans at Dallas Cowboys Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

TMZ Sports is reporting that Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott will not be charged in relation to the domestic violence allegations brought forth by his ex-girlfriend.

The Columbus, OH City Attorney says there were inconsistent details about what the woman claimed were 5 separate incidents from July 17 to July 22 -- and as a result prosecutors felt there wasn't enough evidence to bring a case against the Cowboys running back.

The city attorney also stated that the Ezekiel Elliott camp cooperated fully throughout the investigation. This will surely be a relief to Elliott as he makes his way into his rookie campaign in the NFL. The allegations, coupled with the comparatively minor “pot store” incident, has made it a tough few months for the rookie off the field. The domestic violence allegations were a much more serious matter and could have led to serious consequences.

Elliott should now be able to concentrate solely on his football career. Elliott’s father tweeted about the news.
