Cowboys Elliott suspended six games by NFL

Roger Goodell and the NFL has suspended Cowboys superstar running back Ezekiel Elliott for six games. The discipline comes at the heels of a one-year investigation that determined Elliott violated the league’s personal conduct policy.

Tiffany Thompson, who identified herself as Elliott’s girlfriend at the time of the incident, presented evidence to the league accusing Elliott of domestic violence. The 22-year-old Elliott has consistently denied those allegations and said he is extremely disappointed with Goodell’s ruling. He posted a response on Twitter shown here.

Elliott will appeal the suspension that includes missing games against the New York Giants, Broncos, Cardinals, L.A. Rams, Packers, and 49ers.

If the appeal fails, fans shouldn’t expect to see Elliott until the end of October in a game against the Washington Redskins.

After reviewing the evidence, the league stated they “…there is substantial and persuasive evidence supporting a finding that Elliott engaged in physical violence against Ms. Thompson on multiple occasions during the week of July 16, 2016.”

During the investigation, the league reviewed photographs taken by Thompson showing her physical injuries following the multiple alleged incidents. The league said they determined that:

“Photographic and medical forensic evidence corroborates many critical elements of the allegations regarding the causes of her injuries.”

This isn’t the first time Elliott has received off the field attention. Remember the incident in New Orleans when he was captured on video pulling up the shirt of a female, exposing her breasts in public? Here’s that incident.
