"We" means anyone who was outraged at the NFL's handling of Ray Rice's discipline - an initial two-game suspension that looked toothless at the time, then even more pathetic and tone deaf to the serious issue of domestic violence when the elevator video was eventually leaked to TMZ.

And it's a great opportunity for the other guys.

- Mike Leslie (@MikeLeslieWFAA) August 11, 2017Zeke Elliott & reps statement: "The NFL's findings are replete with factual inaccuracies and erroneous conclusions". On Friday morning, the hammer finally dropped and the National Football League has officially suspended Elliott for 6 games without pay for his alleged role in a domestic violence case from last July. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones will back Elliot as he will file an appeal to the National Football League to reduce or overturn the six-game suspension. With the news, Elliott will no longer be in the first round and could drop as low as the 3rd round.

While Elliott's suspension does not begin until the start of the regular season, Elliott did not play in the Cowboys second preseason game. Elliott has three days to appeal the suspension.

The game will be nationally televised on the NFL Network, but you can always stream the game or watch a replay if you subscribe to NFL Game Pass for all of the preseason games. The police suspended their investigation in the incident shortly after it occurred.

The rising superstar running back Ezekiel Elliott also put up significantly huge figures, rushing for 125 yards on 22 attempts in his final matchup as a rookie. Elliott was watching a St. Patrick's Day parade from the balcony of a local restaurant at the time, and the incident was captured on video and social media.

"Over the course of the previous year, the league conducted an extensive investigation", a league statement read Friday.

"Based on the entire record, the credible evidence establishes that on multiple occasions during the week of July 16, 2016, you used physical force against (the alleged victim) resulting in her injury", Jones said. The league also consulted with medical experts.

The league said its investigation was based on photographs, text messages and other electronic evidence.

The Cowboys played without starting quarterback Dak Prescott, wide receiver Dez Bryant, running back Ezekiel Elliott and tight end Jason Witten.

"That's up to the coaches how much I'm going to play", Prescott said of the team's upcoming game, via The Dallas Morning News. It will be a big blow to a team with Super Bowl aspirations, although the Cowboys have a fantastic offensive line and it will help soften the blow while backups fill the role.
