Jason Witten condemns domestic violence, still supports Ezekiel Elliott

NFL preseason roundup: Rams defeat Cowboys 13-10

The Cowboys will play their first game since learning almost 24 hours ago running back Ezekiel Elliott will be suspended for six games.

Elliott plans to appeal the suspension, his representatives said in a statement.

Schefter was the first to report Elliott's suspension on August 11, and he added at the time that the superstar running back was expected to appeal.

The ruling requires Elliott to get an evaluation to determine whether he needs counseling or treatment, and to show proof that he is following up on any recommendations.

The Columbus City Attorney announced that they would not pursue charges against Elliot because of "conflicting and inconsistent information". Pfeiffer's office declined comment Friday.

We've been hearing the rumor mill for a couple of months now that a suspension could be looming for the 2nd year starter Ezekiel Elliott.

He looked clean through until Cech timed his sprint to perfection and to slide the ball off his toes. Continue in this storming form and Leicester won't be exhibiting the troubles of last season.

As Florio noted, no video evidence of the nightclub incident has emerged. Jones made the comments several times, including during festivities last weekend when he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Prescott also has been proven to use his own run game to score near the goal line and to extend plays and get those harder yards on 3rd and 4th downs to keep the conversions coming. "Although no arrests were made in either episode, the National Football League said that "[even] when a player is not charged with a crime, he may still be found to have violated the [personal conduct] policy if the credible evidence establishes that he engaged in conduct prohibited" by it.

That is good news for Elliott, at least for now. But that doesn't mean you come off your standard of what you stand for.

NFL vice president of communications Joe Lockhart said Friday that the league told Elliott he used "poor judgment and questionable behavior" in pulling down the woman's top during a St. Patrick's Day incident, but that the action did not rise to the level of adding to his penalty.

In the Dallas Cowboys team, expect the other in the young offensive tandem, Dak Prescott, to shine and be the main weapon while their RB1 is out.

Mannion, a third-year backup quarterback from Oregon State, took over for starter Jared Goff early in the second half and was effective while working deep into the fourth quarter. In 2015 in 10 games, he was able to put up a stat line of 1,089 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns.

The NFL's letter tried to offer Elliott some encouragement.
