'Growing sense' Cowboys Ezekiel Elliott may face suspension from domestic violence investigation

It is looking more and more likely that Elliott will not be available to the Cowboys for the Week 2 contest.

Elliott has been under investigation by the National Football League for nearly a year now, specifically pertaining to a pattern of alleged abuse over the span of several days in July 2016, after which Elliott's girlfriend filed a report with police. If the National Football League wasn't planning on suspending him or they didn't find anything worth mentioning to Elliott, why would he respond?

The Dallas Cowboys have had their share of players fighting suspensions and legal issues over the past few seasons. And for Dallas Cowboys nation, how will that affect the Cowboys on the field?

Elliott's response is expected to be submitted sometime over the next week.

If Elliott is suspended - and even if that suspension is appealed - it's entirely possible he misses the regular season opener against the Giants.

The professional sports leagues in the U.S.as with any other companies have their own forms of discipline when it relates to domestic abuse.

#Cowboys front office source on Zeke Elliott & poss. suspension: "We don't know what they are going to do". Dallas possesses one of the best offensive lines in football, capable of making an average runner look unstoppable at times.

It appears from people close to Elliott that the running back is expecting some form of punishment to be handed down. The woman told police that Elliott assaulted her while they were sitting in her auto. The Cowboys have the deepest running back depth in all of football, so they are definitely well equipped to weather the storm. The Dallas Morning News is reporting that the National Football League decision on a possible suspension of one or couple of matchups could be imposed soon on the Dallas Cowboys' sensational running back.

Now, as insane as it may sound to Cowboys fans, the idea of trading Elliott has been thrown out there on social media and podcasts.
