Ezekiel Elliot suspended 6 games.

Elliotts former girlfriend accused him of domestic violence in 2016. Prosecutors in Columbus, Ohio declined to press charges. The NFL, which has taken disciplinary action in other instances when a player has not been charged, held a lengthy investigation into the matter. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said in July there was no evidence of any domestic violence. The Columbus City Attorney's Officedeclined to press chargesagainst Elliott due to "conflicting and inconsistent information." Despite the lack of legal ramifications, the NFL holds the right to punish players even without charges due to its personal conduct policy. The league needed a long time to conclude its investigation, noting the high-profile cases ofRay Riceand more recently Josh Brown led to a more thorough examination.

I would rather it not drag on this long. If there was something to find, which there's not, they would've found it by now. The police did a very thorough investigation. It just seems like they're dragging their feet right now. Who knows, man. I'm just ready for it to end.
