Elliott apologizes, disagrees 'strongly' with suspension

Elliott apologizes, disagrees 'strongly' with suspension

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wasn't pleased with the NFL's decision to hand his star running back, Ezekiel Elliott, a six-game suspension on Friday. Elliott will be eligible to return to the active roster on October 23.

Jones hasn't made any public statements since the Elliott suspension has been announced. One of his agents didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

The NFL Players' Association also issued a statement saying it is reviewing the league's decision and has been "in touch with Ezekiel and his representatives to consider all options".

Charges were dropped, but it could still be subject to National Football League discipline, as Elliott was not charged in the domestic violence case that got him suspended for six games.




". After reviewing the record, and having considered the views of the independent advisors, the (NFL) commissioner determined that the credible evidence established that Elliott engaged in conduct that violated National Football League policy". The Columbus prosecutor's office declined to bring charges against Elliott in that case, citing "conflicting and inconsistent information across all incidents resulting in concern regarding the sufficiency of the evidence to support the filing of criminal charges". At the time, Elliott was a new member of the Cowboys, having been drafted fourth overall following a stellar career at Ohio State.

The All-Pro back finished with 1,631 yards rushing in helping the Cowboys to the best record in the NFC at 13-3 before a divisional playoff loss to Green Bay.

The former Ohio State Buckeye led the National Football League in rushing last season with 1,631 yards in addition to 15 touchdowns.
