Harold Henderson, the arbitrator assigned to hear Ezekiel Elliott's appeal by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, has reportedly upheld the 6 game suspension stemming from domestic violence allegations. If the suspension starts Week 1, Ezekiel Elliott will miss the first 6 games of the Cowboys regular season, and return Week 8(Cowboys bye is Week 6) vs the Washington Redskins.

There have been reports that Elliott will play Week 1 vs the Giants which would cause him to miss the Redskins game if the full suspension is officially upheld. Nothing has officially been announced by the league, but any updates will be added as they are released.
