A woman named Tiffany Thompson, who is allegedly the girlfriend of Dallas Cowboys rookie Ezekiel Elliot, just posted photos to Instagram of bruises on her skin. She alleges these marks are a result of domestic abuse.

Thompson does not directly accuse of Elliot of being her abuser, but his official Instagram handle is tagged in the caption of the second set of photos.

Thompson's Instagram account was made private on Friday morning.

Thompson also filed a police report on Friday morning in Columbus, Ohio, where Elliot is from. The Cowboys are aware of these reports, but have yet to officially comment. The NFL will review the case under its personal conduct policy, a league representative told ESPN.

Elliot denied the accusation and told the police that he never lived with her. He hasn't been charged.

The Cowboys chose Elliott as the No. 4 overall pick in this year's NFL draft. Elliott rushed for more than 1,800 yards and scored 41 touchdowns in the past two seasons at Ohio State.
