NEW YORK, NY (KAUZ) - Dallas Cowboys' running back Ezekial Elliott will have to serve a six-game suspension. The ruling was issued by the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals after a hearing Thursday.
Elliott has been in limbo throughout the entire 2017 NFL season due to a seemingly never-ending battle between him and the NFL.
It is not known if Elliott and his legal team will continue their battle to have him reinstated.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Elliott after domestic abuse allegations by a former girlfriend prior to the 2017 season. Charges were never filed against Elliott due to the district attorney's office in Columbus, Ohio saying there was insufficient evidence to support filing criminal charges on any of the Columbus incidents alleged by the Ohio woman.
