The NFL appears to be very serious about Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension.
Friday morning, the NFL announced that Dallas Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott would be suspended for six games for violating the league’s Personal Conduct Policy in relation to an alleged domestic violence incident with a woman back in July of 2016. It looks like the league is serious about making it clear to Elliott that he needs to clean up his act.
Per NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, the league, in its letter to Elliott, made it clear that any additional violations of the NFL’s policy could result in “potential banishment” from the league.
Here’s Rapoport’s tweet regarding the matter:
If Zeke Elliott has “any additional violations” of @NFL policy it “may result in your suspension or potential banishment,” Elliott was told

Elliott, who led the NFL in rushing during his rookie season a year ago, has made headlines for a number of off-the-field incidents since joining the league. Perhaps this will serve as some sort of wake-up call for the young star.
