Former Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliot will not be charged in a domestic violence case against him, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

Schefter reported Tuesday that the Columbus City Attorney's Office declined to press charges due to conflicting statements.

The NFL announced in July that it was reviewing allegations against the Dallas Cowboys rookie running back. 

A police report said Elliott denied allegations that he assaulted his girlfriend in Columbus, causing bruises and abrasions. The report said he wasn't arrested because of conflicting versions of what happened.

Three witnesses told police they didn't see Elliott assault the 20-year-old woman. Elliott said the woman got the bruises and abrasions in a bar fight.
