PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott will be suspended games, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Elliott will reportedly appeal the decision.
Elliot was investigated for a domestic violence incident last summer. On top of that, Elliott has recently allegedly been involved in a night club fight and reportedly received a speeding ticket.
Elliott, 21, rushed for an NFL best 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns as a rookie last season. He was the fourth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
The Cowboys open the regular season against the Giants, Broncos, Cardinals, and Rams.
