Cowboys RB Elliott expected to be suspended

Sports Xchange - Saturday 12th August, 2017

Dallas Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott is expected to be suspended by the NFL for multiple domestic violence incidents with a league announcement coming as soon as Friday, multiple outlets have reported.

Elliott, 22, is accused by his former girlfriend of five domestic assault incidents in July 2016 in Columbus, Ohio and has been under NFL investigation, although the city attorney's office already announced he will not face criminal charges.

He could be facing a suspension of at least six games for first-time offenders with a possible fine under the NFL's new domestic violence policy.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told NBC during last week's Hall of Fame game that "domestic violence is not an issue" in the investigation of Elliott and that the NFL is reviewing whether or not his behavior violated the league's personal-conduct policy.

The second-year back is coming off a sensational rookie season in which he rushed for a Cowboys-rookie-record 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns en route to his first career Pro Bowl selection.
