Dallas Cowboy Running Back Ezekiel Elliot Suspended 6 Games For Allegedly Beating His Girlfriend
After over a year of investigating Ezekiel Elliott for alleged domestic violence against his ex-girlfriend, the NFL has reportedly suspended him for six games. Many fans are suspecting his innocence and think the suspension was made too early. Furthermore, Elliot will have a chance to file an appeal with the league.

That Elliott received six games here indicates the NFL did in fact find evidence of domestic violence, despite the police dropping all charges last year and despite the Cowboys adamantly denying the NFL had any proof of that in its investigation.
Consequently, this news is a big blow to the organization. The Cowboys won 13 games thanks in large part to Elliott’s contributions on the ground. In his rookie campaign, Elliott rushed for 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns, leading the NFL in rushing.
