Ezekiel Elliott Suspension Reportedly "Definite"

Exclusive: Paperwork Done, NFL Plans To Announce Ezekiel Elliott Ruling Friday Dallas Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott Still Waits The Investigation Conclusion

Ezekiel Elliott, who previous year led the National Football League in rushing and helped a revived Dallas Cowboys go from worst to first in their division, has been suspended six games for violating the NFL's personal-conduct policy.

Elliott's suspension is the product of an investigation into an accusation of domestic violence made by Tiffany Thompson, an ex-girlfriend of Elliott's, more than a year ago in Columbus, Ohio.

Elliott faces the possible suspension due to an incident past year in Ohio. Goodell consulted with a panel of experts with law enforcement, legal and public service backgrounds before reaching a determination.

As tends to happen in domestic violence cases, the woman's credibility has been repeatedly questioned, especially after witnesses said they overheard the woman tell Elliott she was going to "call the cops to ruin his career".


Under the NFL's current domestic violence policy, first time offenders receive a six-game suspension, though the league is able to alter that (to make it harsher or more lenient) based on the circumstances surrounding the incident. The Columbus, Ohio city prosecutor's office declined to pursue charges in early September because of inconsistent information from the victim. Several witnesses, according to sources close to the case, heard the woman yell at Elliott that she would "ruin his career" when she was unhappy that they would not continue their relationship. Elliott pulled down the shirt of a young woman, exposing and touching her breast, while watching a St. Patrick's Day in Dallas, and a video of the incident was posted on social media.

With thier main back out, the Cowboys will need to lean on Darren McFadden, Rod Smith and Alfred Morris. McFadden has two 1,000 yard seasons to his name, including one campaign with the Cowboys in 2015. That's why they were confident enough to suspend Elliott for six games.

The Cowboys open the regular season with games against the New York Giants, Denver Broncos, Arizona Cardinals, Los Angeles Rams, Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers.
