Ezekiel Elliott has issued a statement about his meeting with Roger Goodell on Tuesday, saying he had made a poor decision in Las Vegas and needs to work harder to not put himself in such situations.
Elliott was briefly detained but not arrested in Las Vegas in May when a security guard fell to the ground after being bumped by the running back.
In his statement, which he posted on social media, Elliott said, "Earlier today, I met with the Commissioner to share with him what occurred in Las Vegas and what I have learned from that incident. I've worked hard to make better decisions and to live up to the high standards that are expected of me. I failed to do that here and I made a poor decision.
"I apologized to [security guard] Kyle Johnson at the time and I meant it.
"I need to work harder to ensure I do not put myself in compromised situations in the future. I am rededicating myself to use all of the resources that the league has made available. But in the end, it is up to me and I am determined not to be in this position again."
The Dallas Cowboys star is subject to a fine or suspension under the league's personal conduct policy, which does not require an arrest or conviction for a player to be penalized.
