Ezekiel Elliott six-game suspension upheld

Ezekiel Elliott

The NFL has upheld the six-game suspension handed down to Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott.

After receiving the news he would be suspended for the first six games of the 2017 season for violating the league’s personal conduct policy, Elliott opted to appeal the decision. As ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports, former NFL executive Harold Henderson has upheld the proposed suspension.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport adds the decision came towards the end of Tuesday evening’s hearing.

As a rookie in 2016, Elliott led the NFL in rushing with 1,631 yards and also had 15 rushing touchdowns on the way to a Pro Bowl selection. Darren McFadden figures to get lion’s share of carries if Elliott ends up having to serve the suspension.
