Ezekiel Elliott was suspended by the NFL Friday morning for his role in repeated alleged assaults on his former girlfriend.
Following the 2014 suspension of former Ravens RB Ray Rice, the NFL amended their personal Conduct Policy to set the suspension for domestic violence at six games.
Elliott did receive that suspension via a letter from the NFL, which includes details of his actions as well as a warning.
If the Cowboys RB finds himself in trouble in the future, he’ll be subject to a prolonged suspension or per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, banishment from the NFL.
If Zeke Elliott has “any additional violations” of @NFL policy it “may result in your suspension or potential banishment,” Elliott was told

Elliott has a string of other incidents that have put his behavior off the field in question, including pulling a woman’s top down at a St. Patrick’s Day parade back in March, as well as him allegedly breaking a DJ’s nose at a club in Dallas last month.
