Ezekiel Elliott Announces He'll Be Donating To The Salvation Army

The Salvation Army will be receiving money from Ezekiel Elliott.

Ezekiel Elliott will not be fined for his jump-in-the-Salvation-Army-kettle celebration Sunday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Some money will still be coming out of his bank account, though.

The former Ohio State star tailback announced on Twitter this morning that he'll be making a donation to the Salvation Army.

Elliott had said after the game he thought it was the "perfect celebration."

From ESPN:

"I mean it's just sitting there right in the end zone, you know. It's the perfect celebration," Elliot said after the game. "They're one of our biggest partners, so I had to show them a little bit of love."

Good for the NFL for not fining Elliott and good for the possible NFL MVP for making a donation to the Salvation Army anyway.

Elliott and the Cowboys' (12-2) next game comes a week from today. Dallas is set to host the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football on Dec. 26. The game will be televised on ESPN and kick off at 8:30 p.m. E.T.
