Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott suspended for 6 games

Posted: Updated:

After an NFL investigation into domestic violence allegations, Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was suspended for six games.

The league's investigation revealed "multiple instances" of physical violence against a woman who claimed to be Elliott's former live-in girlfriend, according to a release.

According to a police report, the woman alleged last July that Elliott assaulted her in the driver's seat of her car in Columbus, Ohio. Police said the woman complained of wrist pain but denied medical treatment.

Elliott told police he didn't hit the woman and that they didn't live together, according to the report. The woman also said Elliott struck her several times in the past week, which he also has denied. Elliott said she got the bruises and abrasions in a bar fight.

Columbus police said they did not arrest or charge Elliott due to conflicting statements from the victim and witnesses. Despite not being arrested, the NFL never closed their investigation into the allegations.

ESPN's Adam Schefter was the first to tweet the report Friday morning and added that Elliott is expected to appeal the ruling. He has three business days to file an appeal. If he does not appeal, his suspension will begin Sept. 2.

The NFL Players Association tweeted that they are "reviewing the decision" and are "considering all options."

After being drafted fourth overall by the Cowboys in the 2016 NFL Draft, Elliott scored 16 touchdowns as a rookie and led the NFL in rushing with 1,631 yards.
