Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott will be suspended 6 games for a domestic violence incident according to Adam Schefter. The suspension has been reported for a while as the NFL finished their investigation into the incident. Elliott is planning on appealing, and could get the amount of games reduced.

If the 6 game suspension stands, Elliott will miss games against the Giants, Broncos, Cardinals, Rams, Packers, and 49ers. Zeke would make his return in Week 8 against the Washington Redskins.
