Ezekiel Elliott: 'Strongly disagree' with NFL findings that led to ban

Ezekiel Elliott: 'Strongly disagree' with NFL findings that led to ban

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott said Friday evening that he is disappointed by the NFL's decision to suspend him six games for violating the personal conduct policy, and he apologized for the off-field distraction his saga has become.

The suspension comes as a result of an investigation that started more than a year ago after an ex-girlfriend accused Elliott of domestic violence in Columbus, Ohio. The Columbus City Attorney's office announced in September that it would not pursue charges against Elliott because of "conflicting and inconsistent information," but the NFL can penalize a player even without legal charges.

The Cowboys have yet to officially address the suspension, which was issued Friday. Owner and general manager Jerry Jones has defended Elliott throughout the NFL's investigation, and a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that Jones is furious with the NFL's decision.

A Cowboys source told ESPN's Josina Anderson that the team is standing behind Elliott.
