Elliott set to appeal six-game National Football League ban

Elliott Incident NFL's ruling on Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott expected soon
Spencer Simpson | 12 August, 2017, 00:14

That doesn't mean Elliott will lose all that money, but it means he's no longer guaranteed to make it.

Elliott's ex-girlfriend accused the star running back of five instances of domestic violence over a six-day span in July of 2016.

Elliott will appeal the six-game suspension he was handed Friday for violating the league's personal conduct policy, NFL.com reports.

Elliott now has three days to appeal the NFL's decision on his suspension.

Should the six-game suspension hold up, Elliott's first game back will be October 29 against the Washington Redskins.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said last week that he did not expect a suspension to be coming for Elliott.

The NFL Players Association said in a statement that it is reviewing the league's decision and has been in contact with Elliott and his representatives to consider their options.

The NFL believes it has investigated Elliott's case thoughtfully, thoroughly and extensively and that Elliott violated the personal conduct policy. He is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games. Dallas police eventually suspended the investigation after they were unable to locate the victim.

"Because based on the information that's going to come out, it's going to be fairly easy to determine that something happened to this woman in her four days of being with Zeke", Carter said.

It remains to be seen whether Rod Smith could move all the way up into the starting role, but if Ezekiel Elliott is given a long suspension by the National Football League, then he may have plenty more chances to seize the job.

The Cowboys will have to find their ground game production behind experienced back-ups, Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris, while Elliott is on the sideline.

At St. Patrick's Day festivities in Dallas, Elliott pulled down a woman's top to reveal her breasts.

Either way, for the first six games of the season, barring appeal, Elliot will sit in key games versus the New York Giants, Denver Broncos and Green Bay Packers.
