Read the letter from the NFL suspending Ezekiel Elliott for six games.
Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has been suspended six games by the NFL for multiple domestic violence incidents that amount to a violation of the league’s Personal Conduct Policy.
The league announced the news on Friday after multiple reports indicated he would miss time. Six games has been the league’s standard for a domestic violence punishment. The NFL cited an extensive investigation into the matter and found “substantive and persuasive” evidence that Elliott was physically abusive toward his ex-girlfriend, Tiffany Thompson.
Elliott is expected to appeal the suspension. Without the appeal, his suspension would begin on Sept. 2.
Below is the full letter from the NFL to Elliott:
The Cowboys will play the Giants, Broncos, Cardinals, Rams and Packers before a bye week in Week 6.
