Jerry Jones keeping positive public front day after Ezekiel Elliott suspension

Elliott's suspension was the result of a yearlong investigation into the star running back over domestic violence allegations. He released a statement Friday saying he was "surprised and disappointed" by the suspension.

Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones expressed support for running back Ezekiel Elliott, who was suspended six games Friday, but also said the team believes in replacements Darren McFadden, Alfred Morris and Rod Smith.

"I recognize the distraction and disruption all of this has caused my family, friends, teammates, the Dallas Cowboys organization as well as my fans, for that I am sincerely sorry", the statement read. "I admit that I am far from flawless, but plan to continue to work very hard, on and off the field, to mature and earn the great opportunity that I have been given".

He scored off a Willian assist and then helped David Luiz to a goal with five minutes to play. 'We didn't lose the balance'. Antonio Conte must have had some words with his side at half-time because Chelsea emerged energised after the break.

Goodell had the option of simply noting that Elliott was "in violation of the league's personal conduct policy". Sources have described him as "upset" about commissioner Roger Goodell's decision to suspend Elliott. "The NFL's findings are replete with factual inaccuracies and erroneous conclusions and it "cherry picks" so-called evidence to support its conclusion while ignoring other critical evidence". He can play in preseason games and practice until September 2, regardless of the outcome of the appeal.

Ezekiel Elliott will miss the Cowboys first six games of the season. And certainly we have done that and are comfortable with who we are on this football team. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Elliott has three days to appeal the suspension.

Elliott, the league's leading rusher last season, is planning to appeal the suspension.
