The NFL announced Friday afternoon that it has suspended Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott for six games for violating its personal conduct policy. Elliott and the Cowboys now have three business days to file an appeal, and a hearing on that appeal must be held within 10 days of the notice of appeal. The hearing would be heard either by Commissioner Roger Goodell or a league official designated by Goodell. Should the six-game suspension hold up, Elliott’s first game back will be Oct. 29 against the Washington Redskins. Dallas’s first six games of the season are against the Giants, Broncos, Cardinals, Rams, Packers and 49ers. Assuming the suspension stands, he will lose out on his base salary for the time missed — about $240,000 per game, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter — and will have to pay back some of the $16.350 million signing bonus he has received since joining the Cowboys as the fourth pick of the 2016 NFL draft.
