Elliott set to appeal six-game National Football League ban

And on Friday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the National Football League chose to suspend Elliott for six games, which is the minimum for domestic violence violations.

The suspension comes after a year-long investigation after Elliott was accused of domestic violence by his ex-girlfriend. The Columbus, Ohio city prosecutor's office declined to pursue charges in early September because of inconsistent information from the victim.

To no one's surprise, Elliott is making plans to appeal the ruling.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Elliott intends to file an appeal of his suspension, and a hearing must be scheduled within 10 days of the appeal's being filed.

If Elliott's suspension is upheld, he will not be eligible to appear in a game for the Cowboys until the team's Week 8 matchup against the Washington Redskins on October 29.

Last season, Elliott led the league in rushing with 1,631 yards and touchdowns with 15.

Schefter tweeted that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is said to be furious with the decision.

"League investigators interviewed more than a dozen witnesses, including Ms. Tiffany Thompson, who had alleged multiple instances of physical violence in July 2016, and Mr. Elliott", the NFL said in a statement. The group also reviewed the league's investigative reports and materials, the expert medical reports, and multiple NFL Players Association submissions on Elliott's behalf.

Despite never being charged over the 2016 incident, Elliott has received a six-game ban, found in breach of the league's Personal Conduct Policy.

The Cowboys' matchup with the 49ers would be the final game of Elliott's suspension. He will appeal the suspension.

In most gambling establishments, the Cowboys had been the odds-on favorite to come out of the NFC. Video appeared to show him pulling down the top of a woman at a St. Patrick's Day Parade in March.
