Superstar Ezekiel Elliott has a six-game suspension for allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend on three separate occasions.
However, Elliot does not agree with the NFL’s decision, and believes he should not be suspended.
Elliot’s camp speaks:
“Mr. Elliott and his team of representatives are extremely disappointed with the NFL’s decision,
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.
For example, both the Columbus Prosecutor’s office as well as the NFL investigators expressly concluded and conveyed to our office (and others) that the accuser was lying about an alleged July 22, 2016 incident whereby she accused Mr. Elliott of pulling her out of her car and assaulting her. An allegation that was ultimately undermined by her false allegation of assault.
In addition, the NFL’s own medical experts concluded that many of her injuries predated the week in question and likely occurred during a period of time when Mr. Elliott was not in contact with the accuser.
During the upcoming weeks and through the appeal a slew of additional credible and controverting evidence will come to light.”
Elliot was suspended from the games on Friday for violating the league’s personal-conduct policy. The decision stems from a domestic violence investigation made against him by his former girlfriend, Tiffany Thompson. Elliot denies the claims.
