NFL Star Ezekiel Elliott Gets Six-Game Suspension

Dallas Cowboys rumors ezekiel elliott wont be suspended for week 1

The NFL suspended star Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott for six games Friday, concluding after a yearlong investigation that the league's leading rusher injured his former girlfriend in three separate incidents last summer. She was his girlfriend at the time.

Columbus prosecutors have said they did not feel there was sufficient evidence to meet the burden of proof in a criminal case against Elliott, but stopped short of saying he was outright innocent.

The Dallas Cowboys running back, via his Twitter account, said he is "both surprised and disappointed by the NFL's decision today, and I strongly disagree with the League's findings". I recognize the distraction and disruption that all of this has caused my family, friends, teammates, the Dallas Cowboys organization, for that I am sincerely sorry.

Barring any further legal action, such as a lawsuit, the National Football League appeals process could take place in relatively quick fashion - a little more than three weeks - meaning it could be concluded before the Cowboys' season opener September 10 against the New York Giants.

Elliott has three business days to file an appeal and a hearing must be scheduled within 10 days of receipt of the notice. While he made no direct reference to an appeal in his statement, his legal team did in a separate statement.

On the field, however, the loss of Elliott for more than one-third of the season is devastating to a Cowboys team looking to defend their division championship.

There's no doubt losing Elliott, the league's reigning leader in rushing yards, for six games would be a massive setback for the Cowboys offense.

MIAMI (AP) - Ryan Tannehill has decided surgery can no longer be avoided. He was not arrested and she declined to go to the hospital, the report said.

The person confirmed the diagnosis to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Dolphins had not disclosed the severity of the injury.

Linebacker Koa Misi's season ended two days before the start of training camp when he was placed on injured reserve because of a lingering neck injury.
