Ezekiel Elliott to serve six-game suspension

Ezekiel Elliott to serve six-game suspension

Elliott may appeal this decision within three days. Needless to say, Twitter has plenty to say regarding a suspension more severe than what had been given to documented wife beaters.

Absent from the statement is any mention of a possible appeal or legal action against the NFL.

The Cowboys will be without Elliott for six games - for now.

Last September, the office of Columbus City Attorney Richard Pfeiffer cited conflicting and inconsistent information in the evidence in deciding against criminal charges.

Schefter tweeted that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is said to be furious with the decision. The appeal would be heard by either NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell or his designee.

The NFL's letter said that Elliott must undergo clinical evaluation - and that, should counseling or treatment be recommended, that he comply with those recommendations.

If Elliott's suspension is upheld, he will be eligible to return October 29 against Washington. National Football League special counsel for conduct Todd Jones wrote in the letter to Elliott that advisers "were of the view that there is substantial and persuasive evidence supporting a finding that (Elliott) engaged in physical violence against Ms. Thompson on multiple occasions during the week of July 16, 2016".

In the final three games of the suspension as it stands, Dallas is home to play the Rams before facing Aaron Rodgers' Packers - who defeated the Cowboys at home in last season's divisional round.

In March, he faced major backlash after a video surfaced, showing how he exposed a woman's breasts during the Dallas, Texas, St. Patrick's Day parade, without her consent.

The 22-year-old led the league in rushing as a rookie last season, picking up 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns on 322 carries. Their backup running backs include Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden.

On the field, however, the loss of Elliott for more than one-third of the season is devastating to a Cowboys team looking to defend their division championship.
