Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliot's suspension expected to be around 6 games

Ezekiel Elliott of the Dallas Cowboys carries the ball during the fourth quarter against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Divisional Playoff game at AT&T Stadium on Jan. 15 2017 in Arlington Texas

- There could be a decision today on the suspension of Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott.

Six games in the mandated benchmark suspension under the NFL's domestic violence policy, but a suspension can deviate from that number based on mitigating or aggravating circumstances.

Mike Fisher of 105.3 The Fan in Dallas reports the decision will be announced on Friday.

If Elliott is suspended four games, a successful appeal might drop it down to two games, which means he likely still wouldn't play Denver.

Take this speculative report with a grain of salt, but clarity on any potential league discipline for Elliott could arrive on Friday.

NFL Media's Ian Rapoport adds that, whatever the NFL decides, it will include some sort of suspension. The NFL has been investigating Elliott over a domestic violence incident he was allegedly involved in past year with an ex-girlfriend.

Elliott, who led the league in rushing yards last season (1,631) in his rookie year, has found himself in the center of numerous controversies over the past year. The woman, Tiffany Thompson, also had accused Elliott of pushing her against a wall during a February 2016 incident in Florida. In March, he was videotaped exposing a woman's breast during a St. Patrick's Day parade.
