Yup, you saw it. According to Todd Archer from ESPN.com, “Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has been suspended six games by the NFL for violating personal conduct policy”, announced Friday.
Elliott was accused by his ex-girlfriend of domestic violence in Columbus Ohio. In September the Columbus City Attorney’s office announced that they would not press charges against Elliott due to a lack of information pertaining to the case.
Sources told Adam Schefter that Elliott is expected to appeal the suspension.
Elliott has three business days to file notice of appeal. If he decides to not appeal, Elliott’s suspension would begin on the 2nd of September and end on the 23rd of October.
For most Eagles fans this is good because that gives the Eagles a better chance to win when going against the Cowboys, because Elliott is ranked #3 ( in the whole NFL) in running backs on NFL Fantasy.
