Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott ready for 'long battle' over suspension

Ezekiel Elliott will miss the Cowboys first six games of the season. He can play in preseason games and practice until September 2, regardless of the outcome of the appeal. Elliott was among several players on the Cowboys inactive list, despite his suspension not slated to begin until the start of the regular season. With Dak Prescott being the starting quarterback, always remember he was the third-string option last season at the start of training camp.

A source told ESPN's Adam Schefter Elliott is "ready for a long battle", with the National Football League as he looks to appeal his six-game ban. The hearing must take place within ten days of Elliott filing the appeal.

"Mr. Elliott and his team of representatives are extremely disappointed with the NFL's decision", Elliott's lawyers said.

At the launch, Musk, however, warned that Tesla would face months of "manufacturing hell" as it increases production of the sedan. In addition, two pro-union employees recently spoke out about the potential dangers of the Model 3 production ramp.

"I recognize the distraction and disruption all of this has caused my family, friends, teammates, the Dallas Cowboys organization as well as my fans, for that I am sincerely sorry", the statement read.

Elliott will be appealing the suspension and will have the full support of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones throughout the process.

With the Cowboys having depth issues in recent seasons at quarterback (remember 2015) and even past year when Tony Romo and Moore were both injured before the preseason even ended, the third-string quarterback spot is of vast importance to this roster.

Donut Shop Responsible For Infecting 300 With Norovirus
County health officials say more than 200 cases of norovirus have been linked to a doughnut shop in northwest Ohio. Symptoms of Norovirus include diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, headaches, body aches and a mild fever.

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.

The Cowboys are coming off an exceptional season, but will have to figure out a way to replace Elliott.

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