Ezekiel Elliott Reacts To Six Game Suspension

Ezekiel Elliott Reacts To Six Game Suspension

"We talked to the team about the situation and the importance of focusing on what we can control", Dallas coach Jason Garrett said of Elliott's troubles.

"For example, both the Columbus Prosecutor's office as well as the National Football League investigators expressly concluded and conveyed to our office (and others) that the accuser was lying about an alleged July 22, 2016 incident whereby she accused Mr. Elliott of pulling her out of her auto and assaulting her". Though four games to six is certainly a big gap, this certainly shows that a player can still recover from a suspension as grave as this and still put up the points.

While the league said the St. Patrick's Day incident wasn't part of the decision on discipline, it reflected poorly on Elliott. However, per ESPN's Adam Schefter, this battle could be taken into the courts, a la Deflategate, and could drag out for a "long time", which means Elliott could be available for the upcoming campaign in its entirety. Or maybe they were in shock from the Ezekiel Elliott suspension that was handed down on Friday. However, the letter explains, a player can still be found to have violated the NFL's personal conduct policy even if he hasn't been charged with a crime.

Thoughts on the value of Elliot and others as a result of the suspension? The police suspended their investigation in the incident shortly after it occurred. The letter also says two medical experts were consulted regarding identification, causation, and aging of certain injuries to the alleged victim as depicted in relevant photos, and those experts provided written reports.

CNN has not heard back from Elliott's representatives.

Faulk said Saturday that Elliott can be "in the wrong place at the wrong time".

The Cowboys didn't do well overall in the last preseason, as they went just 1-3 before the regular season, and bounced back to go 13-3 overall when it counted. Elliott, who led the league in rushing yardage and earned first-team all-pro honors, stands to lose hundreds of thousands of dollars, and possibly millions, in lost wages and signing-bonus money he may have to repay the team. The league also consulted with medical experts.
