The NFL world reportedly believes an Ezekiel Elliott suspension is 'definite,' and it could be as long as 6 games

Elliott Incident

He has three days to appeal the decision and punishment - otherwise Elliott will sit out the first six games of the 2017 National Football League regular season.

He does plan to file an appeal, which holds the possibility of reducing, or even overturning the suspension.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones recently defended Elliott and said he expected no penalties from the NFL.

The Ezekiel Elliott suspension has finally been announced.

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.

The star running back can continue to participate in preseason games.

The NFL's leading rusher in 2016, Elliott has definitely had his share of headlines since being drafted No. 4 overall by the Cowboys last spring.

However, because the NFL does not require as much evidence as prosecutors do, the league outlined in its letter that Elliot would be suspended without pay for six games.
