A big blow for the Dallas Cowboys.
Star Running Back Ezekiel Elliott has been suspended for six games by the NFL for violating the League’s personal conduct policy.
“Roger Goodell leaned heavily on a four-person committee composed of legal and medical experts in this aprticular case” ESPN’s Adam Schefter said.
The suspension is the result of the League’s investigation in to domestic assault allegations lodged against Elliott by a former girlfriend. He has also been involved in other incidents, most recently an alleged fight inside a Dallas nightclub.
“The prosecutor said that he believed that there was physical violence that took place between Zeke Elliott and the accuser–but, he did not feel comfortable rendering a criminal decision” Schefter said.
Elliott has three days to decide whether or not to appeal the suspension.
