Ezekiel Elliott will appeal suspension

Ezekiel Elliott will appeal suspension

The Ezekiel Elliott saga has finally reached a conclusion.

The Dallas Cowboys running back has been suspended for six games, the league announced on Friday. Elliott was under investigation for alleged incidents of domestic violence for over a year before the league reached its decision.

Elliott will be allowed to remain with the team through the preseason, but once his suspension begins he will not be allowed into the Cowboys' facility until the suspension ends.

Elliott is the fourth Cowboys player to be suspended for at least one game next season. Defensive linemen Damontre Moore (two games), David Irving (four games), and Randy Gregory (one year) were also suspended. It's possible that cornerback Nolan Carroll (DWI) and linebacker Damien Wilson (alleged assault) could be suspended as well.

The NFL's domestic violence policy calls for any player accused of domestic violence to be suspended for six games, but nearly all prior suspensions for violations of the policy have originally been for fewer than six games. Elliott reserves the right to appeal any suspension, but NFL commissioner Roger Goodell (or a Goodell designee) would hear the appeal unless he recuses himself, so it seems unlikely that any suspension would be overturned entirely.

And in fact, that's what Elliott is reportedly expected to do.
