Report: Ezekiel Elliott will not face charges over Las Vegas incident

An update on the offseason incident surrounding Zeke.

NFL: NFC Wild Card-Seattle Seahawks at Dallas Cowboys Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

There was some interesting Friday night discussion concerning Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (Twitter can be wild), but generally talk these days is about how he still isn’t practicing with his team.

Zeke is holding out in hopes of a new contract after finishing his third season in the NFL. Of course, what follows a season is an offseason and over this past one Elliott fell into trouble with the league once more for an incident out in Las Vegas (one that the NFL already decided he won’t be suspended for).

You might remember that the security guard involved in Elliott’s incident was interested in pressing charges. On Saturday morning, TMZ reported that Elliott will not be charged over anything to do with it.

According to police documents ... the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department met with prosecutors late last month -- and after reviewing all of the evidence in the case, prosecutors felt they could not move forward with charges against the Dallas Cowboys superstar.

While it had already been determined that Elliott wouldn’t be suspended this is still welcome news. Considering everything going on in his life these days, one less issue for Elliott to worry about is a good set of circumstances to have unfold.

The world continues to wait for a contract resolution of any kind between Zeke and the Cowboys. How long will we have to stay patient? Well, nobody knows.
