Ezekiel Elliott had no interest in discussing a report earlier this week that stated the NFL had recently interviewed the Dallas Cowboys rookie running back regarding domestic violence allegations from earlier this summer.

Elliott was cleared of any criminal wrongdoing by the Columbus (Ohio) city attorney’s office in September, but the league’s investigation remains ongoing.

Elliott met with NFL investigators more than a month and a half ago and has not spoken to league officials since.

But the NFL has come under fire in recent weeks over how they handled a May 2015 domestic violence arrest of then-New York Giants kicker Josh Brown.

That, in part, is likely why the NFL has yet to close the door on Elliott’s situation.

Elliott is leading the league in rushing with 703 yards, and is on pace to break Eric Dickerson’s rookie rushing record of 1,808 yards in 1983.
