Ezekiel Elliott Not Playing in Preseason Game Against Rams as Appeal Looms

Could Cooper Rush Become The Cowboys Backup Quarterback

In his rookie season, Elliott rushed for 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns. The threat from the league means that Elliott needs to stay out of trouble. Elliott will be eligible to return to the active roster on October 23. One of his agents didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

"Mr. Elliott and his team of representatives are extremely disappointed with the NFL's decision", Elliott's lawyers said.

Goodell had the option of simply noting that Elliott was "in violation of the league's personal conduct policy".

And if you're wondering if Jones has also gathered behind-the-scenes National Football League support for the Cowboys' belief that the domestic-violence-related punishment dispensed by commissioner Roger Goodell is heavy-handed and misguided?

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has never in 27 years, to my knowledge, missed a "Jerry Jones Media Party" at training camp because, well, it's the Jerry Jones Media Party. The Columbus prosecutor's office declined to bring charges against Elliott in that case, citing "conflicting and inconsistent information across all incidents resulting in concern regarding the sufficiency of the evidence to support the filing of criminal charges".

Accusing Elliott of committing "multiple instances of physical violence" against a former girlfriend, Tiffany Thompson, the National Football League concluded a year-long investigation with a punishment that Elliott, through his lawyers, has vowed to appeal. Jones made the comments several times, including during festivities last weekend when he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The Cowboys have not announced whether Elliott will play at all during the preseason.
