To appeal six-game suspension

To appeal six-game suspension

The potential loss will be greatly felt on a team that went 13-3 last season and leaned heavily on Elliott's game. League investigators first interviewed Elliott in October, reconvening with him last month. "The league also consulted with medical experts".

The league revised its personal conduct policy in 2014 following sharp criticism of a case involving former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice. Elliott would be able to play while commissioner Roger Goodell - or his designee - hears the appeal, but the hearing doesn't have to be held at any specific time.

He could be facing a suspension of at least six games for first-time offenders with a possible fine under the NFL's new domestic violence policy.

Prosecutors decided not to press charges, but the National Football League said in a statement that after an "extensive investigation", they found that Elliott violated their Personal Conduct Policy.

It is already anticipated that Elliott will appeal the decision, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, and he has the next three days to do so. He remains eligible to play in all preseason practices and games until September 2. Dallas police eventually suspended the investigation after they were unable to locate the victim.

Elliott was accused of hitting his ex-girlfriend while the two were in a vehicle together. He was never arrested and prosecutors declined to charge Elliott, citing conflicting and inconsistent information. In a statement, Elliott denied the woman's accusations. According to the police report, Elliott told authorities that she "became angry over a social media incident and upset because she was asked to leave his apartment and go back to OH". Elliott's case has been under review for almost 13 months.

The Cowboys will have to find their ground game production behind experienced back-ups, Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris, while Elliott is on the sideline.

The NFL has long had a clear policy regarding the punishment for drug violations, but there was inconsistency surrounding the punishments for other offenses.

The NFL revealed that it wasn't simply just the domestic violence case that helped them reach their decision.

Also, before the team left for training camp, Elliott was allegedly involved in an incident at a Dallas bar that left a man with a nose injury. Police announced days later that they had suspended their investigation after detectives were unable to locate the man who was assaulted.
