According to ESPN, Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has been suspended for six games after violating NFL personal conduct rules.
This incident has occurred due to an investigation that began a year ago in regards to Elliott’s ex-girlfriend who accused him of domestic violence in Columbus, Ohio.
Charges were not pursued again Elliott because of “conflicting information” nevertheless, the NFL still has rights to reprimand players without legal charges being involved.
Sources claim Elliott will appeal the six-week suspension, however, if he does not act within three business days, his suspension will begin on September 2nd and his return to the field will be on October 23rd.
The NFL was informed and identified three separate occasions that caused injuries to the ex-girlfriend, which includes PHOTOGRAPHIC evidence.
Despite the accusations, Elliott’s representatives claim there may be “alternative theories” as to how the ex was injured.
