Ezekiel Elliott suspended for six games

The NFL was thorough in its report, which will make Elliott's appeal interesting. Needless to say, Twitter has plenty to say regarding a suspension more severe than what had been given to documented wife beaters.

Ezekiel Elliott responded to a six-game suspension levied upon him by the NFL Friday in a tweet late Friday evening. It was a year-long investigation by the National Football League, going back to 2016, when Elliott was alleged to have been involved in a domestic violence incident with his ex-girlfriend.

Elliott's absence should hurt Dallas through their first six games.

Last September, the office of Columbus City Attorney Richard Pfeiffer cited conflicting and inconsistent information in the evidence in deciding against criminal charges. The appeal would be heard by either NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell or his designee.

The NFL said Friday that more than a dozen witnesses were interviewed, including the woman who alleged physical violence. If he does file, Elliott would then to schedule a hearing with the league within ten days of receipt of the notice.

In a statement, the NFL Players Association announced that they are reviewing the NFL's decision and are in contact with the running back and his representatives. Should the suspension stand, he'll be eligible to return October 29 at Washington.

After playing three seasons at Ohio State, Elliott was selected by the Cowboys No. 4 overall in the 2016 NFL Draft.
