The NFL's ruling is in and Cowboys fans won't like it: Running back Ezekiel Elliott has been suspended six games for violating the league's personal conduct policy, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The suspension stems from an incident that took place more than a year ago. Elliott's ex-girlfriend accused him of domestic violence, and though the legal charges haven't been pursued, the NFL can still conduct its own investigation and discipline the player.
Elliott will likely appeal, per Schefter. The hearing would be scheduled some time in the next two weeks.
