Dallas Cowboys vs Los Angeles Rams 2017

Dallas Cowboys vs Los Angeles Rams 2017

The Dallas Cowboys' 2017 plans were thrown for a major loop recently when the National Football League announced star RB Ezekiel Elliott would be suspended for the first six games because of an alleged domestic-violence incident.

Cowboys Executive V.P. Stephen Jones said on the Cowboys' radio network that the team takes the allegations very seriously but continues to support Elliott. He is expected to appeal his six-game suspension. In announcing the suspension under the NFL's personal conduct policy, the league said its investigation was based on photographs, text messages and other electronic evidence.

With that suspension also came a stern warning by the league directly to Elliott in writing: Another violation of this nature could lead to an even bigger punishment.

And while the Cowboys were confident that he would not miss any games, fueled by owner Jerry Jones' blatant confidence, the team did prepare for the possibility, per Garrett.

The ruling under the NFL's personal conduct policy came despite prosecutors in Columbus, Ohio, deciding almost a year ago not to pursue the case in the city where Elliott starred for Ohio State.

Elliott, with the help of the Cowboys and the NFLPA, is going to appeal the decision and there is talk of fighting the decision beyond Goodell's office and into the court system. We're one play away from being a starter.

The Cowboys played without starting quarterback Dak Prescott, wide receiver Dez Bryant, running back Ezekiel Elliott and tight end Jason Witten.

NFL vice president of communications Joe Lockhart said Friday that the league told Elliott he used "poor judgment and questionable behavior" in pulling down the woman's top during a St. Patrick's Day incident, but that the action did not rise to the level of adding to his penalty.

One of those players is a veteran in Darren McFadden, who was ultimately ousted as the team's starter ahead of last season as Elliott was selected in the first round of the NFL Draft out of Ohio State.

The drive was set up when Cowboys punt returner Lance Lenoir fumbled a punt to set the Rams up at the Cowboys 33-yard line.

The NFL's letter tried to offer Elliott some encouragement. "Our goal is for you to have as successful a career as possible".
