Ezekiel Elliott remains eligible to play this week, but the Cowboys will miss two other suspended players against the Giants. Twenty-three players on 16 teams have suspended players, according to research by Howard Balzer of Pro Football Xchange.

The suspensions range from one game to 10 for violations of policies for substance abuse, performance-enhancing drugs, personal conduct or repeated violations of NFL safety rules. Those players will miss a total of 85 games. Another 15 free agents also are suspended a total of 56 games.

Balzer’s list does not include players like Dallas defensive end Randy Gregory, who was suspended for at least one year, or Falcons defensive tackle Ra'Shede Hageman, who is on the commissioner’s exempt list as the result of a domestic violence incident from 2016.

Atlanta: Cornerback Jalen Collins (10).

    Why don’t these guys just get together with Ezekiel Elliott’s lawyer and file a class action suit against the NFL for expecting them to follow the rules?
    ————————

    Because these guys actually broke rules, whereas Elliot was hornswoggled by the league office.

    I “thumbed up” your post. Not because I agree with you, but because you used the word ‘hornswoggled’.

  3. Where are all the “Patriots are cheater’s” haters? You don’t see any Patriots on there and I’m sure those haters have at least one of their teams on this list. Shhh. be very quiet when it comes to your teams.
