Dallas Cowboys player Ezekiel Elliott has been suspended by the NFL for six games without pay following a league investigation into allegations of multiple instances of domestic violence.

After a long, drawn out investigation by the NFL, Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has been suspended six games for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

It was announced in September that the Columbus City Attorney's office wouldn't pursue charges against Elliott due to "conflicting and inconsistent information".

Aside from his initial financial losses, the suspension voids the guarantees on Elliott's four-year, $24.9 million contract. The hearing would be heard either by Commissioner Roger Goodell or a league official designated by Goodell. Any ruling would be considered binding.

If Elliott serves the entire suspension, he will be eligible to return to the team October 29, when the Cowboys travel to play the Redskins.

Hill died from hyperthermia due to environmental exposure, authorities said, and the manner of death was listed as an accident. By noon, the inside of the van had increased to 133 degrees, and by 3 p.m., it had increased to about 144 degrees.

The lawyers for Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott have issued a statement that disputes several claims made by the National Football League as justification for suspending Elliott six games to start the 2017 regular season. Whether Elliott's suspension will even hold up for Week 1 ― when the Cowboys are scheduled to open their season against the New York Giants ― remains to be seen. Elliott has three days to file an appeal.

According to NFL.com, the league is also looking at "multiple" other incidents involving Elliott, although it's unclear what those are.

The investigation heard evidence from numerous witnesses, including Elliott's former girlfriend and Elliott himself.

The NFL alleged Elliott used "physical force" in July 2016 during altercations with his ex-girlfriend resulting in her sustaining injuries.

Five months later, the woman said Elliott also had assaulted her in OH, and abused her over several days, The Dallas Morning News reported a year ago.
