Cowboys' RB Ezekiel Elliott suspended for 6 games

OXNARD, Ca (RNN Texoma) -

Dallas Cowboy running back Ezekiel Elliott has been suspended for six games according to reports by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Elliott’s suspension comes as a result of allegations of domestic abuse made by his former girlfriend in Columbus, Ohio. The local district attorney’s office has declined to file criminal charges against Elliott due to inconsistencies in the alleged victim’s statements and her lack of credibility. The NFL has the ability to suspend players even if legal action is not being taken.

Elliott has three days to file an appeal to the suspension through the league office and is expected to do so. A hearing will be held within 10 days of that filing to rule on the appeal.

Elliott made the Pro Bowl last year in his rookie season after leading the league in rushing yards with 1,631 and scoring 15 rushing touchdowns.

He will not be able to attend and team activities, including the remainder of training camp, until his suspension is complete.
