Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott suspended six games

Ezekiel Elliott suspended 6 games by NFL for violating personal conduct policy

According to NFL.com, a decision on any potential Elliott suspension or punishment "could come as early as Friday." If he does, the league will make a decision on the appeal within 10 days after it's filed.

Under the personal conduct policy, players found by the league to have committed domestic violence are subject to "a baseline suspension without pay of six games" regardless of whether "the conduct does not result in a criminal conviction". Any ruling would be considered binding.

Without an appeal, the suspension would begin September 2 and he would be eligible to return to the active roster October 23, the day after the Cowboys' Week 7 game against the San Francisco 49ers. After being picked with the fourth overall pick in the 2016 draft, he led the National Football League in rushing last season with 1,631 yards on 322 carries.

The NFL's press release regarding Elliott's suspension states that league advisors "were of the view that there is substantial and persuasive evidence supporting a finding that [Elliott] engaged in physical violence.on multiple occasions".




Although it's still a complete mystery about how all of this might play out, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is confident that Elliott won't be suspended. Elliott was accused by his ex-girlfriend, Tiffany Thompson, of five domestic violence incidents over a six-day span in Columbus, Ohio.

Ezekiel Elliott was just suspended 6 games by the NFL.

The NFL has sent a very clear message to Ezekiel Elliott: We are taking all of your actions and the accusations you faced very seriously.

"Over the course of the a year ago, the league conducted an extensive investigation", the NFL statement read. Elliott was allegedly involved in a fight at a bar in July. "The league also consulted with medical experts", the statement said. Most likely, the second-year back will miss a significant portion of the Cowboys season. It marked one of 11 games in which the 49ers allowed a 100-yard rusher en route to allowing the most yards rushing for a season in franchise history, 2,654.
