Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliot continues to make headlines for all the wrong reasons. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported earlier this week that Elliot could face a short suspension for a domestic violence incident that didn’t result in an arrest. Today’s report from Schefter has Elliot involved in a bar fight in Dallas. If the allegations are true, and the NFL was already planning a suspension for Elliot, he could be missing more games this season. The annual Dallas Cowboys suspension watch is on, and the number of players suspended continues to rise.

An NFL official said the league is aware of the situation involving Elliott and "looking into it to understand the facts."

Elliott is already under NFL investigation stemming from a 2016 domestic violence accusation against him. The running back had been preparing a response to the league to be submitted in the next week, sources told Schefter.

And there’s allegedly a video of the victim after the assault.

TMZ Sports has obtained video of the victim moments after he was struck in the face by an assailant at Clutch Bar in Dallas.

The person who shot the video tells us the man was involved in a verbal altercation with a woman who was in Ezekiel's party ... when Ezekiel got involved.

The witness says she saw Ezekiel punch the man -- corroborating the story the victim's friend told police. However, cops at the scene could not confirm Zeke was the attacker and he has not been arrested or charged with a crime.
