A man is suing both Ezekiel Elliott and the Dallas Cowboys for allegedly covering up the severity of a car crash in 2017.
According to TMZ Sports, Ronnie Hill is seeking $20 million in damages after claiming the Cowboys "conspired with the Frisco Police Dept. to cover up the severity of the accident to assure that Elliott's health would not be placed in question before their playoff game."
The crash took place on January 11, four days before Dallas took on the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round of the playoffs.
The collision was described as a "minor vehicle crash" at the time and Elliott provided a positive update to fans on Twitter.
However, the lawsuit says the crash was much more severe: "If anyone had actually reported the impact of the accident and had Elliott been examined he would have most likely been placed in concussion protocol and out for the Dallas Cowboys upcoming playoff game."
