Ezekiel Elliott has been suspended six games by the National Football League, according to ESPN.
ESPN reports that Elliott has been suspended six games by the NFL for violation of the league's personal conduct policy. Elliott's suspension is for the first six games of the season. Elliott has three days to appeal the suspension and the NFL has ten days to hear the appeal.
The suspension is a result of an investigation launched more than a year ago after an ex-girlfriend of Elliott accused him of domestic violence in Columbus, Ohio. According to ESPN, the Columbus City Attorney's Office announced in September that it would not pursue charges against Elliott, but the NFL can suspend a player without legal charges.
Elliott plans to appeal the suspension and the NFL Players Association has reviewed the suspension and has contacted Elliott about his options.
