National Football League could still investigate Ezekiel Elliott bar incident

National Football League could still investigate Ezekiel Elliott bar incident

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott could reportedly face additional National Football League discipline stemming from his alleged involvement in a bar fight on July 16.

"Mr. Elliott and his team of representatives are extremely disappointed with the NFL's decision", Elliott's lawyers said. The league cited photographs, medical information and thousands of electronic messages as evidence to back its decision to suspend Elliott, who led the NFL in rushing in 2016.

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.

Ryan Howard agrees to minor league deal with Rockies
The Rockies inked first baseman Ryan Howard to a minor league contract on Saturday, per a team announcement . Throughout his career, Howard has blasted 382 home runs and drove in 1,194 runs at the major league level.

Elliott has three days from receipt of the letter to file an appeal, and assuming he does so, he will have a hearing within 10 days of his filing. "I admit that I am far from ideal, but plan to continue to work very hard, on and off the field, to mature and earn the great opportunity that I have been given".

Ezekiel Elliott posted a statement Friday evening in which he apologized for causing "distraction and disruption".

Kisner, born in SC , joined him at four under in the afternoon with a birdie on his final hole in Charlotte . Day, Johnson and Hideki Matsuyama all shot one-under 70s to remain within touching distance of the lead.

Elliott was seen on the field doing pregame sprints, and did not look to be injured. 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. If we have to play with other running backs, we like the running backs on this team. Elliott's suspension is just the latest in a long list of Cowboys off-field woes during the summer.

Elliott, the league's leading rusher last season, is planning to appeal the suspension.
