Ezekiel Elliott responds to six-game suspension

The Columbus City Attorney's office announced in September that it would not pursue charges against Elliott because of "conflicting and inconsistent information", but the National Football League can penalize a player even without legal charges.

And it's a great opportunity for the other guys. Stacy Elliott said in the statement.

Elliott, 22, wasn't charged in the alleged July 2016 domestic violence incident.

Elliott has three days from receipt of the letter to file an appeal, and assuming he does so, he will have a hearing within 10 days of his filing. The NFL Players Association released a statement Friday saying it is reviewing the decision and has been in touch with Elliott and his representatives to consider all options. With the news, Elliott will no longer be in the first round and could drop as low as the 3rd round.

It wasn't a pretty game by any stretch of the imagination, but the Cowboys second preseason game still provided a few vital clues about how the team will look come the 2017 regular season.

It has been a tumultuous week in Dallas, and a preseason game is the least of the Cowboys worries.

Schefter was the first to report Elliott's suspension on August 11, and he added at the time that the superstar running back was expected to appeal. Faulk previously said he doesn't consider himself a mentor to Elliott but rather a friend.

"So while alternative theories are interesting, in my judgment they have to be supported by evidence, and that was lacking in this particular situation", Harvey said.

The league also noted an incident during a St. Patrick's Day parade in Dallas this year, when Elliott pulled down a woman's shirt, exposing and touching her breast.

The Cowboys played without starting quarterback Dak Prescott, wide receiver Dez Bryant, running back Ezekiel Elliott and tight end Jason Witten. On Saturday, Goff started the game for the Rams and completed three of his four pass attempts for 34 yards and a 100.0 quarterback rating before leaving the game leading 7-0.

Jones previously said that the focus of the league's investigation was centered around Elliott's behavior and not the domestic violence allegations.

Garrett has made numerous starters sit out of the preseason games as a precaution and some of the top young players are still on their way back to recovery from injury.

"We can't control what the National Football League does and it's not my place to comment if it's justified or not", said head coach Jason Garrett.
