Elliott Practices; Police Investigating Complaint

Freshman wide receiver Prentiss Elliott went through practice on Tuesday after allegations surfaced regarding a domestic situation involving Elliott and his juvenile ex-girlfriend.

On Sunday afternoon, according to newspaper reports published Wednesday, the female claims that Elliott pushed her down a hill near the Allie P. Reynolds baseball stadium, according to a police report.

But when she attempted to call police, Elliott took her cellphone and went into his Bennett Hall dorm room, the report said. The female then drove to a convenience story and called police, the report said. The OSU campus police responded to the call, returned the female's cellphone and took statements from both Elliott and the female, the report said.

The report has been filed with the Payne County district attorney's office, although no charges had been filed as of late Tuesday night

"We're trying to find out exactly what's going on and what will go on," OSU head coach Les Miles said. "Certainly, we're concerned, with what we know at this point. We probably need more information.

"With each young man that I deal with, I try to figure out what's happened accurately, and certainly it's what we're going to do in this instance. I'm not going to react prematurely, based on what is a perception."

The Cowboys went through a nearly three hour practice on Tuesday as the game plan was installed for Saturday's nationally televised showdown with Texas.
The really good news was the practice involvement of cornerback Darrent Williams. Williams took part in practice in full dress and went through virtually every period of the practice. It would seem that if he is able to continue practicing at this level throughout the week that he would be able to play.
Offensive left guard David Koenig (back injury) was limited in what he was able to do in practice.
