NFC East Watch: Ezekiel Elliott apologizes, avoids suspension from NFL
/ Redskins

By Chris Roling

The Washington Redskins, at least as of this writing, will have to see Dallas Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott twice in 2019.

Questions loomed around Elliott’s status for next season thanks to another off-field incident. He had to meet with commissioner Roger Goodell due to a May incident that occurred at a music festival and went viral.

After the meet, the NFL issued a statement:

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.

Just before that release, Elliott himself issued a statement:

A year ago, the Redskins held Elliott in check during their first meet, limiting him to 33 yards on 15 carries. The second was much worse — Elliott ripped off 121 yards and a score on a 4.7 average.

The Redskins will see Elliott and the Cowboys in Week 2 in Washington and Week 17 at Dallas to close the season.
