    The Dallas Cowboys will allow first-round running back Ezekiel Elliott to practice with the team at training camp despite recent domestic abuse allegations. Elliott's ex-girlfriend accused the rookie of assault last week in Columbus, Ohio.

    Police were called to an incident involving Elliott and his ex-girlfriend in Columbus and nobody was arrested. The responding officer found inconsistencies in statements given by Elliott, the ex-girlfriend and witnesses.

    "We've seen no contradictions from any of the information we've seen, and the information we've seen would have him here at camp involved with us. I've seen no bits of information that have contradicted that," said Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

    Elliott was on the team's chartered plane to California on Thursday and is in Oxnard preparing for his first training camp.

    Meanwhile, his ex-girlfriend took the case to the Columbus prosecutor's office, which will produce an investigation into the incident in question.
