Ezekiel Elliott expected to be suspended for start of National Football League season

Dallas Cowboys rumors ezekiel elliott wont be suspended for week 1

For what it's worth, owner Jerry Jones and wide receiver Dez Bryant both said they don't expect to see Elliott suspended for any games.

Earlier this week, during a taping of Fox Sports 1's "Undisputed", Cris Carter said he would be "shocked" if Elliott wasn't suspended in the next 48 hours.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported six games is in play, but noted it could also be a lesser suspension that is paired with a fine.

The NFL could discipline Elliott as soon as Friday or Saturday morning for violation of the league's personal conduct policy, according to 105.3 The Fan's Mike Fisher. Per a league source, a suspension is "definite".

Elliott, a former Ohio State Buckeyes running back who rose to National Football League stardom as a rookie last season, denied the accusations, was not arrested and did not face charges related to the incidents. Elliott's ex-girlfriend accused him of five incidents of domestic violence over a six-day period in July 2016, though prosecutors in Columbus, Ohio, declined to press charges because of "conflicting and inconsistent information" from witnesses.

Then, in March, Elliott was filmed pulling down a woman's shirt, exposing one of her breasts, while watching a St. Patrick's Day parade in Dallas. And last month, he allegedly punched a DJ in the face at a bar in Dallas.

Any suspension surrounding Elliott would have wide-ranging ramifications for the Cowboys.

Police in OH investigated and did not file charges.
