Ezekiel Elliott Drops Appeal; Won’t Return Until Dec. 24th
Dallas Cowboys second-year RB Ezekiel Elliott has decided to drop the appeal of his six-game suspension for domestic abuse allegations, and he will serve the final five games of his penalty, beginning with Sunday night's game against NFC East-leading Philadelphia. That's according to multiple media outlets.
The former Ohio Stater will now be eligible to return to the Cowboys for their Christmas Eve game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Elliott was originally suspended back in August by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell over said domestic abuse allegations, stemming from an incident with a former girlfriend.
