Rams Beat Cowboys 13-10 in 2017 Preseason Opener

Rams WR Watkins eager for fresh start, grass field in LA

"We talked to the team about the situation and the importance of focusing on what we can control", Dallas coach Jason Garrett said of Elliott's troubles. However, the looming absence of Elliott will also serve as an opportunity for the other running backs on the Cowboys' current roster.

The ruling under the NFL's personal conduct policy came despite prosecutors in Columbus, Ohio, deciding almost a year ago not to pursue the case in the city where Elliott starred for Ohio State.

Now, the New York Giants catch a break in not having to face Elliott in the first game of the season.

Multiple reports emerged early Friday indicating that there is a very real chance that Elliott will face a six-game suspension for his conduct when word comes down from the National Football League offices.

The 22-year-old Elliot has three days to appeal the ruling, which his legal team said he would do while blasting the decision. Here's where you can locate a Dallas Cowboys vs Los Angeles Rams live stream for free!

- Mike Leslie (@MikeLeslieWFAA) August 11, 2017Zeke Elliott & reps statement: "The NFL's findings are replete with factual inaccuracies and erroneous conclusions". The NFL Players Association released a statement Friday saying it is reviewing the decision and has been in touch with Elliott and his representatives to consider all options.

Though Elliott plans to appeal the suspension, he'll still likely miss some time this year, so the Cowboys need to come up with a backup plan. Harvey said an example was proof that photographs were taken by Thompson the same day she alleged that she was injured by Elliott. He can play in preseason games and practice until September 2, regardless of the outcome of the appeal.

While Elliott's suspension does not begin until the start of the regular season, Elliott did not play in the Cowboys second preseason game. In a six-page letter to Elliott, the NFL made it very clear that the league has the right to banish him forever if he were to get in trouble again. The No.1 overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft played in seven games as a rookie, and he didn't appear ready to be an NFL starter. Elliott, who led the league in rushing yardage and earned first-team all-pro honors, stands to lose hundreds of thousands of dollars, and possibly millions, in lost wages and signing-bonus money he may have to repay the team.
