- Star running back given six-game suspension after yearlong investigation
- Team owner Jerry Jones had said Elliott did nothing to indicate any guilt
- Elliott, 22, has had a string of off-the-field issues after one season in NFL
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was suspended for six games Friday after a yearlong NFL investigation of his domestic violence case in Ohio.
The 2016 NFL rushing leader was suspended despite prosecutors in Columbus, Ohio, deciding a year ago not to pursue the case involving Elliott’s girlfriend at the time in the same city where he starred for Ohio State.
