NFL suspends Ezekiel Elliott six games

Getty Images

Last year, Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott emerged as perhaps the league’s brightest young star. This year, Elliott will start the season on a suspension for domestic violence.

The NFL has suspended Elliott for the first six games of the season. The suspension comes as a result of Elliott’s ex-girlfriend saying he assaulted her in July of 2016.

A looming suspension has long been discussed, even though Elliott was never arrested or charged with domestic violence and has insisted he did nothing wrong, and even though Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has insisted the franchise is steadfastly behind its second-year running back. The six-game suspension is in line with the NFL’s policy on domestic violence, although that policy is flouted so often as to make it meaningless.

Elliott will surely appeal the suspension, and the appeal should be heard well before the start of the regular season.

  1. BOOM! What’s Jerry gonna say now? He said a month ago Zeke wasn’t getting suspended. LOL Poor Cowboy fans. You had your chance last year and choked it away.

  2. Cowboy haters crying tears of joy right now . This is without a doubt the best thing that ever happened to them, not family or children but this is suspension. Congratulations cowboy haters !

  3. I would think the appeal would reduce the suspension to something like 3 or 4 games, given that he was never charged. Kind of creepy that the NFL can suspend you that long on the basis of one person’s allegation. It would be interesting to see what other evidence the NFL gathered that the police did not.

  4. Let’s see how the team handles this. Any fringe player would be out of football (Josh Brown last year with the Giants) if there was any domestic violence. But since he’s a star, this will all go away after the suspension.

  5. I think we are looking at a Shane Falco year in the future. No way the players subject themselves to Roger’s wobbly, inconsistent hammer again. The Steelers were the only team to smell that nonsense from the beginning. Lesson learned.

  6. 6 games is absolutely ridiculous. Maybe he’ll stop being such a screw-up off the field. Looks like 8-8 at best now.

  7. I’m not against people hating on Goodell, as so much of it is deserved. But under no circumstances should this have been less (or more) than the 6 games as outlined by the domestic abuse policy. The only travesty here would have been if Elliott received some ‘discount’ because of his status. Otherwise, the NFL (his employer and who he signs a known conduct policy with) felt that he was deserved of the mandated six games for violating the policy.

    There should not be anger nor praise toward this. Policy was merely enacted as it should have been.

  8. Need to see the evidence before I get outraged. I’m a Cowboy fan but loathe men who lay hands on a woman and no love of a sports team will change that. If there is convincing evidence then so be it. If not, then that too is disturbing.

  9. Funny how fans look past transgressions if it affects their team, but are more than willing to slam that player or team if it’s not theirs. Just win, Baby.

  10. If you can be suspended for “allegations” then watch for a lot of baseless allegations against other players. What a great tool for payback.

  11. This is a good example of what happens with over-regulation of things, you end up with things like: Kids not being able to put up a lemonade stand without first getting a permit from the city, or this, a suspension of almost HALF the season based on some policy that was knee-jerked into existence just because Ray Rice struck his wife with one blow as she was all up in his face and charging at him in the elevator.

  12. He will not only be welcomed back, he’ll be celebrated upon his return. NFL is cool with domestic violence, just don’t make any political protests points…..

  13. If he did it then he deserves at least 6 games. I just wish the NFL showed some sort of consistency in this stuff. 1 game, 2 games, 4 games, 6 games…. which is it?

    -Cowboys fan

  14. Elliott has something popping up seemingly every couple of weeks. NFL did the right thing. Hopefully EE straightens out. If Jerry and the Cowboys continue to coddle him it will not end well.

  15. Pretty likely that the appeal will lessen it four games. None-the-less, one would hope that this will get the young man’s attention. This incident is one of a growing number, so if he doesn’t get it together there will be a lot more days off in his future.

  16. It will be appealed and the appeal will last through week 1 of the regular season. It will be repealed with time served one game suspension. Meanwhile the NFL, Rodger Goodell, Jerry Jones, and Ezekiel Elliott will get plenty of publicity. In the long run even bad publicity becomes good publicity.

  17. I hate the Cowboys as much as anybody, but this sounds like some BS.

    Is this all based on an allegation? There better be some proof this actually happened to impose such a huge penalty.

    At the very least there should be some shady Brady cover up behavior like destroying phones or refusing to cooperate.

    If this is as simple as an ex-girlfriend makes an allegation with no proof at all and Goodell steps in to look like a tough guy, then that’s pretty scary.

  18. I personally think its ridiculous that they suspend someone who has never been charged with anything related to this case. Let alone convicted. This is yet another case of Goodell trying to show he is this big bad of authority. I hope Elliott appeals this the same way Brady did and ends up playing all year. He should win the case since there is no outstanding legal investigation in regards to this case.

  19. Patriots fans tried to warn you about the NFL kangaroo court….. you wouldn’t listen because the Brady suspension was so delicious for you.

    Rest of NFL fans, your turn is coming. No rhyme, no reason, no evidence…. just suspensions.

  20. Oh please I’m not a cowboys fan and even I know he will play all year, thanks to a very slow judicial system and his appeal rights. If he is really guilty of what transpired it’s ashame that justice won’t be served, but if he’s innocent, that’s why the appeals process is a good one.

    At the end of the day…..there is no place in life for domestic violence…..

  21. I’m not sure he should have gotten six, and I am pretty sure it will get reduced on appeal, but I am getting a little tired of the Elliot apologists on here. Here is what we KNOW to be true. While under investigation for domestic violence allegations, Elliot:

    1) Committed sexual assault on camera by pulling a woman’s top down without her consent and..

    2) Broke someone’s nose in a bar fight

    Two documented acts, both of which warrant suspensions despite whether he was eventually charged on the DV accusations or not.

    He’s earned it. Get over it.

  22. He was Never arrested or charged! Meaning he is INNOCENT! So ANY gold digger can make crap up?
    and the NFL knows more than the cops do? The kid is 21 and has some growing up to do, most 21 year
    old kids do and most of you grown men do as well so spare me the hate on him.

  23. The police found his accuser as not credible, yet the NFL feels otherwise? He’s far from a choirboy but 6 game is too much compared to past suspensions. Queue PFT deleting this comment among others…..

    It’s not over yet.
    ______________

    It might just as well be. Arbitrator Goodell will uphold the suspension authorized by Commissioner Goodell. Thanks to the precedent the courts handed the league in the hard fought Brady decision the only thing left after that will be some shouting.

  25. 6 games sounds fair. How many games was NYG Josh Brown suspended after being accused of over 20 incidents of domestic violence, including an incident at the Probowl?

  26. Based on what is publicly known, how does he get 6 games when they gave Josh Brown 1 game last year? If the NFL doesn’t know more than what’s been reported, this doesn’t seem equitable.

  27. This proves the Zeke is the best running back in football today because all the people that were hoping for a suspension got their wish including all the trolls on this board. Let’s face it, your team didn’t have a chance if you were playing the Cowboys with Zeke. Yes, talking to the Giants, Broncos, Cardinals, Rams, Packers, and 49er fans…you know that your team was going to get trashed by the Cowboys offense with Zeke because they know that they would not be able to stop him.

  28. Ben Roethlisberger, vs. Ezekiel Elliott. The difference? Like night vs. day…… If Big Ben got nothing, then the SAME should apply for ‘Zeke.
    =====

    Ben got 6 games.. later reduced to 4.

  29. Zeke should sue the pants off Goodell and the NFL!! Law enforcement professionals said “there is nothing here”! But Roger Goodell, the fake sheriff, says there is. Fire Goodell TODAY!

  30. As a Patriots fan all I can say is….HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    How does it feel when Roger drops the hammer on you?

    I don’t know if Zeke is guilty or innocent but am happy to see Roger hammer the whiniest slimeball owner in the league Mr. Jerry Jones.

    Can’t wait for Jerry’s cry baby hissy fit.

  31. Pats fan here…Welcome to the club of delusion, lying and image-conscious, creepy Goodell failed leadership.

    This is because he tried to cheat for Steve Bisciotti, Baltimore and Ray Rice in 2014, simply because he didn’t want another AFC team to not be able to challenge the Pats. If cut, Rice commanded at 9.5 mil cap hit on top of Flacco’s bloated salary.

    Everything has an angle with Goodell and everything is done based on how he projects the reaction to be.

    I will say I am surprised good ol Jerrah lost the battle on this one.

  32. Can’t wait to see all the fans who viciously tear Kaepernick apart at every turn, find some reason to defend Elliot. Because it’s ok to hit your wife or girl as long as you keep quiet and play winning ball, but never, never try to speak truth to power. That’s the ultimate sin.

    **********************************************************************
    He broke someones nose??????? You know this how? Elliott was never named as a suspect, he was never named by the victim………so….where are you getting your information?

  34. 6 games is a joke. It’s a knee-jerk reaction by the league to make up for screwing up with players that actually deserved lengthy punishments and didn’t get them. No way does the evidence prove Zeke is guilty of domestic abuse, expect a lengthy fight from Zeke and the Cowboys on this one. Goodell and the league are a total joke.

  35. “Any fringe player would be out of football (Josh Brown last year with the Giants)”

    Josh Brown is only out because the real story came out after Goodell tried to help bury a long history of domestic violence that the Maras and team were well aware of. Initially he was given a whopping 1 game suspension and the Giants and Goodell acted like he’d done nothing wrong.

  36. This is the system you wanted Jerry when you punished Tom Brady with no evidence. However silly that infraction may have been, domestic violence is serious and Elliott is a bad person. Should’ve been 8 games.

  37. All kidding aside, this really could be the beginning of the end for Goodell. Jones is the best deal maker in the league, and it doesn’t take a whole lot of imagination to see him forming a coalition of owners to oust the commissioner, given the timing and inconsistent nature of the punishments Goodell has given out over the last few years. Kraft took one for the league in New England. I’m not sure Jones will be as generous.

  38. Der Leader has spoken. Let’s see if Jones takes the high road “for the good of the NFL” like Robert Kraft did. I suspect he will.

  39. Perhaps we see how good, or not so good, Dak really is now? I get so tired of the man-crushes that show up after one decent, not great season. Let’s see how season 2 and 3 go before we fit them for their HOF jackets. There were 20 other QB’s in the league that could have done what Dak did last year in that offense.

    ==============================

    He deserves 6 games for the domestic violence and even more for those two additional acts.

  41. “Elliott has something popping up seemingly every couple of weeks.”

    That’s part of the problem … he should stay home (out of the limelight) and get into his film and playbook …

  42. Deal was worked oout ahead of time….act like your being tough with 6 games, but end up with an appeal. 4 games MAX. It’s ALL a joke , the NFL, the owners, the commis. The sad thing is the FANS arnt laughting.

  43. Why do all your third graders who don’t like authority always whine and complain when some idiot punk bashes his girlfriend (but is not charged) gets disciplined by the League. Goodell is running things the way he needs to.
    And sorry, Brady was guilty of at LEAST destroying evidence. If he was so innocent, why destroy your phone?

    No “Injustice” here people. Just an immature young man needing to learn that he no longer will have coaches and teachers looking the other way for him because he’s such a great football star. Hopefully a wake-up call and nobody else in his life is hurt.. or worse.

  44. From what people have been saying who have been in the know on this, he apparently destroyed his cellphone,s o the league automatically came down on him like with Tom Brady. I still don’t think the league should be involved in this kind of stuff and should leave it up to law enforcement where btw the laws need to get a lot tougher too.

    allegations!! guilty until proven innocent. goodell is a joke

    _____________________

    Brady was proven innocent, yet still “guilty” under the law of the Fuhrer.

  47. Reduction to four games on appeal. It’s the Packers ‘hard luck’ axiom at play. No way the NFL will let the Cowboys face the Packers in a national game without full-complement in Week 5. The fix is in on this one.

  48. Hahaha I bet all you cowboys fans that are so outraged cheered when they suspended Ben for a whole lot less. There was a 2 day investigation on Ben and a voluntary interview before the case was thrown out. The Steelers tried to tell everyone the CBA gave Goodell to much power but no nobody wanted to listen to them. Only blasted them saying they just wanted to hit dirty and Goodell was fining them for it.

  49. Its funny how everyone knows what happened. Where do you get your reports from? I’m guessing you have inside peeps that know it all and were there? Maybe you should of shared that info with the NFL and FBI so your BOY wouldn’t get suspended. Bright side, he should learn his lesson from this and continue with a great career.

  50. Green Bay Packers: Better football for better people.

    Go Pack Go!!!
    =====

    Al Jazeera ring a bell?

    Everybody knows Peppers and CMIII were/are taking “supplemnets”

    Just be glad that story went away..

  51. The NFLPA needs to push back on this in the next CBA. No suspensions until a criminal conviction is made.

  52. Elliott got what he deserved. All of you who slammed the woman as some kind of gold digger were wrong.
    Elliott has no regard for women other than to treat them any way he feels like treating them.
    Maybe this will shake Jerruh Jones into some common sense in his dealings with bad guys on his Cowboys from now on.
    Chris Carter was right, too. He said Elliott was facing a suspension and even said it would be given by today.

    John Mara controls Goodell.

    FACT

    Fact huh? Got any actual proof, or just a tinfoil hat. There are 32 owners, and I seriously doubt that 31 would let 1 have that much power. If Goodell is the puppet of 1 guy, he would be gone. Yet the ownwers, collectively, have his back. Logic is hard.

  54. Y’all wanna show mara and Roger all cowboy fans should boycott everything NFL this year don’t buy merchandise don’t watch the games and stay off NFL apps I’m tired of mara and Roger ripping us off should of beat the packers in the last 2 playoff games and the refs stole em I’m done with this fixed farce of a league

  55. Brady gets four for air pressure (allegedly)and Zeke get six for assault (allegedly)? Pretty low standards Roger!

    Don’t despair Cowboy fans! You’ll still win the division and and 3rd or 4th seed in the playoffs.

  56. This is what happens when Goodell can suspend anyone for anything. Hope any Cowboys fans that rooted for Goodell against the Pats feel pretty smart right now. And just as a people will consider Brady a cheater, people will now consider Zeke a woman-beater, whether he did it or not.

  57. The NFLPA needs to push back on this in the next CBA. No suspensions until a criminal conviction is made.
    =====

    Ideally, sure!

    But being the weakest Union in sports, they’ll fold like a cheap deck chair, as they always have.

  58. There’s no comparison between Elliot and Brady. With Elliot, there’s evidence. Now for some advice to Zeke: stay clean the rest of your career, don’t take Briton of the pile barbs and jabs the wrong way, and accept the suspension as Brady did. You and your team will move on as NE did. If you draw any attention to yourself, you’re asking for years of targeting on and off the field. Cut your losses.

  59. Ezekiel Elliott should pick on someone his own size. I punked that dude when he was in college at OSU. I was visiting family there and we were at a bar when this clown showed up like he owned the place. We ignored him until he came to our table and thought he was going to “whoop on everyone” for not giving him respect. Him 6 feet 225 lbs. and me 6’7 280 lbs. I put him in his place very quickly. I’m just glad nobody took a picture or video.

Kind of creepy that the NFL can suspend you that long on the basis of one person’s allegation. It would be interesting to see what other evidence the NFL gathered that the police did not.

    Somewhere (hopefully not near any public bathroom stalls), Ben Roethlisberger is nodding his head in agreement.

  62. For all of you asking about “where’s the evidence” and whatnot all you have to do is go back to the Brady finding. Remember his suspension was a result of their findings that “it was more probably than not” that he was involved in deflating footballs even though some of the Colts’ footballs were also under weight.

    If the NFL conducts an investigation and they decide it was more probably than not that the player broke the code of conduct policy according to what they’ve dug up then it has nothing to do with any police investigation or dropped charges or a case not going to court. Do not confuse the bar set for needing to convict someone in a court of law to the bar the NFL uses to dole out punishment. They’re completely different.

    Six games without an arrest nor a conviction. Yeah, this isn’t going to stick.
    ———————

    This isn’t some legal process. Goodell can Article 46 a guy just for looking at him funny. If Zeke prostrates himself in front of Goodell, then kisses his ring, he might get it busted down to 4 games.

    The sad part is that this is just an overreaction by Goodell, caused by his complete mishandling of the Ray Rice and Josh Gordon suspensions.

    Chris Carter claimed that Elliot would get suspended in the next 48 hours, which was up on Wednesday. He also claimed that Elliot destroyed evidence, which was not the case.

    So no, Chris Carter was not right.

    Right, but there was no arrest or charges. Goodell needs to show us, the NFL paying customer, just what the evidence is.

    If there is proof, like with Roethlisberger, that there was a crime cover up, then fine.

  66. The league office is spinning the punishment wheel from Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Nothing else makes sense.

  67. Elliott is a dirt bag. Screw him. But this is what likely will happen:

    That POS Josh Brown gets one game for domestic violence.

    This POS Ezekiel Elliott gets 6 games for domestic violence.

    (We all know Brown got 1 game because Mara, Goodell’s puppeteer, probably told him “Give him one game, to keep up appearances, then it will go away organically”).

    Now Jerruh is pissed. But as a good owner he is not going to play ‘The Card’ but he damn sure will be contacting Elliot’s representation to make sure they play ‘The Card’.

  68. Jerry jones defending Elliot in all honesty just makes Jerry Jones look worse. I mean seriously. regardless whether you think elliot abused the woman or not… You all are blind if you cant see he has a track record of proving that he is just a bad person. Going out of your way to defend a guy like this just makes the cowboys look even worse of an organization. take the lumps. im not saying you have to cut elliot but at least realize that he is a troubled person and just take the 6 game suspension.

  69. Pretty ridiculous you can be suspended for 38% of the season when you weren’t charged with a crime. Then again, this is the same league that suspended Brady over physics so it’s not surprising.

    Maybe all those people who hate the Pats should just accuse some of the stars of domestic violence so the NFL will insta suspend them.

  72. Sean Payton was suspended for a year and convicted of nothing….no evidence. Saints fans told you people that Goodell was a lunatic and time has proved us correct.

  73. While it is indeed unacceptably boorish and juvenile, only in a world overrun with money-sucking lawyers can flashing a womans breast be considered sexual assault. If that is sexual assault, then so is giving a kid a wedgie.

  74. The law of the land never pursued allegations against Elliot due to insufficient evidence. Yet the NFL managed to find enough to suspend for 6 games. Which according to policy is akin to saying his was guilty of domestic violence. The disparity is astounding!

    Confidence level the league can prove their case … 0.000001% chance.

    More of the same from the ridiculous commissioner that is ruining the league.

    That’s hilarious. Steelers tried to warn the Patriots and every other team about giving Goodell this much power. Especially after the way Goodell nailed Roethlisberger who was never charged with anything.

    But the Patriots didn’t care because it wasn’t their guy getting screwed over.

    Then they cried when Brady got nailed. Boo hoo.

    So basically suspend him because he’s a bad person. Regardless if the evidence proves he did anything. We’ve heard that before with deflated balls.

    Ezekiel Elliott should pick on someone his own size. I punked that dude when he was in college at OSU. I was visiting family there and we were at a bar when this clown showed up like he owned the place. We ignored him until he came to our table and thought he was going to “whoop on everyone” for not giving him respect. Him 6 feet 225 lbs. and me 6’7 280 lbs. I put him in his place very quickly. I’m just glad nobody took a picture or video.

    ********************************************************

    So…..lets see if I have this right….Elliott came in to the bar and was so starved for attention (in a town he basically owned while playing there) that he came to YOUR table? Can you throw a football over that mountain over there? Wait….I bet if it handnt been for that knee injury, you’d have gone pro! Do you have a job that pays you six figures and enjoy weekends on your yacht?

  84. Everyone getting what they deserve with this one:

    1) Elliot, by just about all accounts is not taking the winning lottery ticket he’s been giving seriously. He’s always in some kind of behavioral or legal issue and guilty or innocent, he was heading for something like this.

    2) All Fans who hated on the Pats/Brady/Saints for the falls they all took due to the league office’s unchecked power. I’m actually glad it happened, again. I can only hope the Ravens and Colts are next on the list of those that get screwed.

    3) Jerry Jones….He’s forever be doomed to preside over under achieving teams because his guys care more about just about everything more than they care about winning.

    I just hope that if all the smoke surrounding Elliot means there is a fire….those women he abused get some justice.

    And sorry, Brady was guilty of at LEAST destroying evidence. If he was so innocent, why destroy your phone?

    ——————————————————————————————-

    Sorry but the phone was NOT evidence. It was private property and the NFL had no right to ever see it.

    Pretty sure that the same individuals were duped into believing that someone should turn over a personal telephone filled with private information to prove their innocence. Guess the dupes all forgot that it’s innocent until proven guilty….not the other way around.

    Was especially funny when the NFL had to admit in court that they had no evidence….meaning the NFL had nothing that proved guilt.

    It’s also funny when people make comments where it becomes obvious that they assume that the NFL was cheated out of having smoking gun proof when Brady wiped his phone. It’s obvious that some people lack the 2 working brain cells necessary to figure out that only one phone is needed to see all the messages that were sent between 2 phones.

    When the NFL already has the 2 team owned phones along with the printed phone logs that Brady provided it means that the was no unknown information related to communication on Brady’s phone. Just personal information that the clowns were so disappointed that they would never see.

    =========================
    Apparently they need more evidence to determine a catch than they do domestic violence.

    NFL cannot request personal property, they are not law enforcement. And the NFL had all communications with the equipment guys and all of Brady’s call logs and even above and beyond, his emails. They only evidence that has been withheld is the PSI checks which, if they helped the NFL’s PR case, they would have released.
