The NFL trade deadline came and went without a great deal of action, but there are still plenty of rumors swirling around the league. The season is still hitting the halfway point this weekend, and as a result, injuries are piling up for several teams throughout the league. From signings to ongoing position battles, here the latest NFL news and rumors below.
Elliott involved in another domestic violence incident?
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is still being investigated by the NFL for his role in an alleged domestic violence incident with his ex-girlfriend in July, but according to Tom Pelissero and A.J. Perez of USA Today, Elliott was involved in a previous incident in February:
The woman who accused Dallas Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott of abusing her for five days in July also called police on him months before the NFL Draft, alleging she suffered left shoulder pain from the force of Elliott pushing her up against a wall during an argument that turned physical.
An incident report obtained Friday by USA TODAY Sports from the Aventura (Fla.) Police Department said there were no visible signs of injury and that the accuser declined to go to the hospital after police responded to a call about an altercation at Elliott’s apartment Feb. 12.
Elliott wasn’t arrested. Terry Chavez, spokesperson for the Miami-Dade State Attorney's office, told USA TODAY Sports the case was not forwarded to prosecutors for review. Chavez said there's no record the accuser pursued charges on her own.
It's unclear if the NFL was aware of these allegations. Elliott leads the NFL with 799 rushing yards, and he also has five touchdowns.
Harvin expected to play vs. Seahawks
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Percy Harvin surprised many when he came out of a year-long retirement to sign for the team on Tuesday, and now it seems like he could be contributing on the field this weekend. According to head coach Rex Ryan, the Bills expect Harvin to play Monday night against the Seattle Seahawks:
"I feel good about Percy," Ryan said. "I didn't say we'll play him 50 snaps, but I will play him... I think we can play him some, I do. He looks good out there. The conditioning part of it and doing the football-specific things are obviously not to where he would be if he was here the whole time, but I think he can help us."
Harvin played in five games for the Bills last season before retiring, catching 19 passes for 218 yards and a touchdown.
Jordan Cameron contemplating retirement
Miami Dolphins tight end Jordan Cameron has been placed on IR with a concussion and is contemplating retirement because of it, reports ESPN:
Miami Dolphins tight end Jordan Cameron, who has had four concussions in the past four years, will be placed on injured reserve and is considering retirement, a source confirmed to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Saturday.
Cameron, who will miss the remainder of the season, hasn't played since suffering a concussion against the Browns in Week 3.
Cameron has been seeing a concussion specialist in Pittsburgh. He said this week he was improving, and he hoped to return this season, but the Dolphins decided to replace him on the roster.
He missed five games due to concussion issues in 2014, his last season with the Browns. He signed a two-year contract with the Dolphins in 2015 and played in all 16 games last season.
Cameron has eight catches for 60 yards and a touchdown this season.Back to the NFL Newsfeed
