Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott 'surprised and disappointed' by National Football League suspension

Bayern's Robert Lewandowski celebrates after scoring his second goal during the German soccer cup match between Chemnitzer FC and and FC Bayern Munich in Chemnitz eastern Germany Saturday Aug. 12 2017

If the NFL determines that there is enough evidence that Elliott was responsible for the punch, there is a chance the Cowboys running back could face further league discipline.

It was rumoured in recent weeks that Elliott could receive a short suspension prior to the start of the season, after allegations he assaulted a former girfriend. Dak Prescott will also be missing from action. The hearing must take place within ten days of Elliott filing the appeal.

Elliott is appealing the suspension and could pursue other legal measures to get it reduced or overturned.

Elliott released a statement on Twitter disagreeing with the suspension.

"I am both surprised and disappointed by the NFL's decision today, and I strongly disagree with the League's findings", the statement read.

The Detroit Tigers have been struggling of late and need a reversal of fortunes. The win takes the Twins into the second Wild Card spot.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has never in 27 years, to my knowledge, missed a "Jerry Jones Media Party" at training camp because, well, it's the Jerry Jones Media Party. He was on the field during pregame warmups on Saturday but did not suit up.? At the time, Elliott was a new member of the Cowboys, having been drafted fourth overall following a stellar career at Ohio State.

That would constitute a major on-field setback for Dallas, which relied heavily on the rookie running back last season and was rewarded with a 13-3 record and an NFC East title. Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris are expected to compete for the starting job until Elliott returns.

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.

The former Ohio State Buckeye led the National Football League in rushing last season with 1,631 yards in addition to 15 touchdowns.
