Ezekiel Elliot releases statement regarding six-game suspension

Posted August 14, 2017

The NFL's letter said that Elliott must undergo clinical evaluation - and that, should counseling or treatment be recommended, that he comply with those recommendations. Last September, it was announced that charges against Elliott would not be pursued due to "conflicting and inconsistent information".

Elliott said he "strongly disagree [s]" with the league's ruling in his domestic violence case. "League investigators interviewed more than a dozen witnesses, including Ms. Tiffany Thompson, who had alleged multiple instances of physical violence in July 2016, and Mr. Elliott", the league continued in their statement.

However, the league continued with their own investigation and think they have found enough evidence against him to warrant a suspension.

Prediction: Everton vs Stoke City
We brought some players in but we would like to bring some more in". "We know Stoke and we got what we expected - a tough game". We've just got to make sure we don't get wrapped up in that. "It's probably going to be a day too late (for Everton game)".

But while some users took it merely as a coincidental jab at how Elliott might use his free time if he serves the suspension, others took it as a joke regarding domestic abuse.

Five months later, the woman said Elliott also had assaulted her in OH, and abused her over several days, The Dallas Morning News reported previous year. The Dallas bar incident from last month that Elliott was accused of being involved in was not a factor in the decision.

The letter to Elliott also addressed a March 11, 2017 incident during a St. Patrick's Day parade in which Elliott pulled down the top of a woman, exposing and touching her breast, from a balcony of a Dallas restaurant.

US stocks slip amid heightened US-North Korea tensions
The Swiss currency was little changed against the dollar at 0.9637 franc after surging more than 1 percent the previous day. The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index lost 0.75 per cent and MSCI's gauge of stocks across the globe shed 0.40 per cent.

"You should understand, however, that your behavior during this event was inappropriate and disturbing, and reflected a lack of respect for women", Todd Jones wrote. Las Vegas has taken that game off the board at many sportsbooks due to Elliott's suspension.

If the appeal is upheld, Elliott will be able to return to the Cowboys on October 23, the day after the teams' week 7 game against San Francisco. He set rookie franchise records for yards, rushing touchdowns (15) and total touchdowns (16).

Still, the Cowboys have one of, if not the, best offensive lines in the National Football League, so their rushing attack still should be productive with Darren McFadden until Elliott returns to the field.
