Ezekiel Elliott Not Playing in Preseason Game Against Rams as Appeal Looms

Share

Elliott's suspension stems from domestic violence allegations made against him past year in Ohio. Elliott was subject to the league's personal conduct policy for allegedly breaking the nose of a DJ at a Dallas nightclub.

The NFL Players' Association also issued a statement saying it is reviewing the league's decision and has been "in touch with Ezekiel and his representatives to consider all options".

National Football League officials said in a statement Friday that it investigated Elliott's case thoroughly and determined that he violated the personal conduct policy. The league cited photographs, medical information and thousands of electronic messages as evidence to back its decision to suspend Elliott, who led the NFL in rushing in 2016.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Elliott has three days to appeal the suspension.

"Dallas police closed their investigation into the incident, however, two days later because the alleged victim wasn't cooperating in the case", George wrote.

Elliott will be appealing the suspension and will have the full support of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones throughout the process. Jones made the comments several times, including during festivities last weekend when he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. At the time, Elliott was a new member of the Cowboys, having been drafted fourth overall following a stellar career at Ohio State. He was seen in a legal marijuana shop during the preseason in Seattle last year and was also involved in a bar fight in Dallas a week before training camp this year. In his rookie season, Elliott rushed for 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns.
