It looks like Ezekiel Elliott went to the "Marshawn Lynch Media Training School." The Cowboys first round running back had the same answer for every question he was asked regarding his domestic abuse allegations.

"I'm not going to comment on anything regarding legal matters but I'm glad to be here to talk about football," said Elliott repeatedly in the same manner that Lynch used to do when talking to the media. 

This was the first time "Zeke" spoke publicly since his ex-girlfriend accused him of domestic assault a week before training camp in Columbus, Ohio. The woman accusing Elliott took her case to the prosecutor's office and a legal investigation is underway.

The NFL is also privately investigating the alleged incident. The Cowboys have enough information to feel that it's appropriate for Elliott to participate at training camp.

The 4th overall pick in the 2016 draft was willing to talk about football and he's anxious to put on the pads on Monday.

"I'm excited to get back out here playing ball. I'm excited for tomorrow to get out here and put the pads on finally and see what everyone is about. I'm just looking forward to tomorrow, ready to get better," said Elliott.
