Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott ready for 'long battle' over suspension

Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas reacts after getting a red card during the English Premier League soccer match between Chelsea and Burnley at Stamford Bridge stadium in London Saturday Aug. 12 2017

The decision came despite Cowboys owner Jerry Jones saying he hadn't seen anything to indicate Elliott was guilty of domestic violence and that he didn't think his star back would be suspended.

Ezekiel Elliott responded to a six-game suspension levied upon him by the NFL Friday in a tweet late Friday evening.

"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 that I have been given".

Since then, Elliott has been recorded pulling a woman's shirt down at a St. Patrick's Day Parade and been involved in an incident at a bar that left a man hospitalized.

"Obviously we know this was something that could happen", Jones said of Elliott's suspension, per 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. "The NFL's findings are replete with factual inaccuracies and erroneous conclusions and it "cherry picks" so-called evidence to support its conclusion while ignoring other critical evidence". The hearing must take place within ten days of Elliott filing the appeal.

Before the next four preseason games get under way on Saturday, here is a look at the two players vying for the third-string quarterback spot for the Cowboys during the 2017 season - that is, if the Cowboys decide to keep three quarterbacks on the 53-man roster. If his ban is not overturned, he will have to sit out the Cowboys' first six games and will not be able to practice with the team or use its facilities until the suspension ends. "And certainly we have done that and are comfortable with who we are on this football team".

It was rumoured in recent weeks that Elliott could receive a short suspension prior to the start of the season, after allegations he assaulted a former girfriend.
