Ezekiel Elliott’s six-game suspension could be reduced, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Appeal hearings for the Dallas Cowboys running back started Tuesday and finished Thursday, and the league is being pressured to announce a decision on Elliott’s suspension by Monday, ESPN reported.
According to Schefter, it could be good news for Elliott.
“There’s a real chance he could have some time knocked off here,” Schefter said.
On Aug. 11, the NFL suspended the former Ohio State star after the league investigated domestic abuse allegations against Elliott.
As a rookie, Elliott ran for an NFL-high 1,631 yards and scored 15 touchdowns. The Cowboys open their season Sept. 10 against the Giants, but if the six-game suspension stands, Elliott will not be eligible to play until Oct. 29 against Washington.
