Emmitt Smith 'really concerned' about Ezekiel Elliott's future

Emmitt Smith worries about the future for Ezekiel Elliott after the league suspended the star running back for six games. Elliott has made several headlines " for the wrong reasons " since he entered the league as the fourth overall pick in 2016.

That includes a St. Patricks Day parade in March when Elliott pulled down the shirt of a woman to expose her breast, an incident noted by NFL special counsel for conduct B. Todd Jones in a letter to Elliott informing him of the suspension.

What Im really concerned about is his future, Smith said on the Rich Eisen Show. This is a tremendous opportunity for a lot of athletes to be able to do something that you absolutely love and get compensated for it and be able to have an impact in another persons life.

But this is temporary. We have a shelf life in this sport. This doesnt last long, so we have to take advantage of every moment and missing six games right now is not affording you the opportunity to take advantage of every moment.
