The Dallas Cowboys have a bye in Week 6, meaning Elliott won't be eligible to return to the field until Week 8 if the six-game suspension stands after his appeal.
The NFL sought the advice of four external advisors, who met with Elliott, his lawyers, and representatives from the NFL Players Association on June 26 of this year.
Not only will the suspension force Elliott to miss the start of the season, it could also potentially cost him a lot of money.
The NFL released a statement shortly after Schefter's report saying it interviewed more than a dozen witnesses and consulted medical experts. Elliott may be their most unsafe weapon on offense, but other key players for the Cowboys such as Dak Prescott and Dez Bryant will certainly be a major test for the Rams' defense.
Elliott's made headlines for all the wrong reasons this offseason - he was caught exposing a woman's bare breast at a St. Patrick's Day parade and was accused of attacking a man in a Dallas bar in July.
The NFL has cracked down on domestic violence allegations in recent years, and a 2014 revision of its personal conduct policy gives Commissioner Roger Goodell the ability to suspend players with or without a conviction.
