Ezekiel Elliot Suspended Six Games For Domestic Violence Allegations

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot bursted onto the scene last year as one of the best young running backs in the league. Ever since then, he has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons.

As of yesterday, after a year long investigation originally sparked by domestic violence allegations, the NFL made a ruling that suspended Elliot for the first six games of this season pending an appeal.

Zeke responded by tweeting out a statement.

Of course, this ruling will likely be appealed by Elliot so nothing is set in stone yet. However, it is likely that even if this is appealed, the ruling will stand and Elliot will be without the Cowboys for the first six games of the season.

This now marks two Dallas players in the pst few weeks that have either been suspended or released due to off the field incidents. Early in training camp, receiver Lucky Whitehead was released for shoplifting allegations.

Regardless of what does happen with Elliot, the Cowboys have to change their approach to off the field incidents. It seems like there is always a Dallas player in the news for an off the field incident that could have been avoided completely.
