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

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott on Saturday said he was "surprised and disappointed" with the NFL's decision to suspend him for the first six games of the regular season.

"I admit that I am far from ideal, but I plan to continue to work very hard, on and off the field, to mature and earn the great opportunity that I have been given".

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 NFL, however, could investigate the matter on its own and pursue further action against Elliott-despite the running back having never been arrested or charged in the incident-if enough evidence is collected and Elliott is found to be responsible for the punch". But Elliott and his representation plan to fight the suspension arduously. It's within his CBA-dictated power to go beyond that, but that doesn't mean his league partners have to agree with it. Elliott & his reps are "extremely disappointed".

Elliott, with the help of the Cowboys and the NFLPA, is going to appeal the decision and there is talk of fighting the decision beyond Goodell's office and into the court system. If the suspension holds up, Elliott wouldn't be eligible to play in the regular season until October 29 when the Cowboys play the Washington Redskins.
