If Ezekiel Elliot doesn't stay out of trouble, there's a chance he could be banished for life from the NFL.

"I admit that I am far from flawless, but I plan to continue to work very hard, on and off the field, to mature and earn the great opportunity I have been given".

Harvey also said some of the explanations offered by Elliott's representatives, including that Thompson was injured in a fight with a woman or by falling down stairs, weren't supported by evidence.

The suspension was the result of an National Football League investigation into a domestic violence allegation made against Elliott in July 2016. Elliott is expected to file his appeal of the NFL's ruling on Tuesday, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. With the news, Elliott will no longer be in the first round and could drop as low as the 3rd round.

According to the letter Elliott received informing him of the suspension, the National Football League believed he used "physical force" three times in a span of five days in a Columbus apartment last July resulting in injuries to Tiffany Thompson's face, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, wrists, hips and knees.

By virtue of the suspension, Elliott isn't set to play a regular-season game until Week 8 since the Cowboys are on the bye in Week 6.

Jones said the Cowboys won't adjust their plan for when Elliott plays in the preseason because of the suspension. The police suspended their investigation in the incident shortly after it occurred. That would have been the case, he said, even if Elliott had not been under investigation. He was cited in April for driving 100 miles per hour in a 70-mph zone, he appeared on video to expose a woman's breast during a St. Patrick's Day parade in March, and more recently was accused of punching a nightclub DJ in Dallas, though police suspended that investigation because the accuser was not cooperative. The league also consulted with medical experts.

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is staring down a lengthy suspension, per reports. On Saturday, Goff started the game for the Rams and completed three of his four pass attempts for 34 yards and a 100.0 quarterback rating before leaving the game leading 7-0.

In the letter, the league says it interviewed more than a dozen witnesses in connection to the domestic violence allegations, including the alleged victim.

All four players have been in and out of practice, and it's clear that other injured players, such as receiver Tavon Austin, will not play.

"I have reviewed everything, and there is absolutely nothing - not one thing - that had anything to do with domestic violence", Jones said during the team's training camp.
