On Tuesday another ruling came down on the Ezekiel Elliott melodrama: his six-game suspension is stayed for another 14 days. This one came from a New York court. Unless another judge, I think in New Orleans, rules before those 14 days are up, Zeke will be back on the field for the next two Dallas Cowboys’ games: a home game against the winless 49ers and a visit to the Redskins.
Both of these games should be Dallas wins even without Elliott. After that, the Cowboys have nine remaining regular season games. If this keeps dragging on and Elliott keeps playing, it becomes increasingly likely he’ll either miss playoff games or some games to start the 2018 season.
What is Zeke’s response? “When you get accused of something of that magnitude, you kind of get labeled as an abuser, and that’s just not me,” Elliott said softly before a throng of reporters in the Cowboys headquarters. “That’s not how I want to be seen, not how I want to represent my family. It’s just important for me to fight.”
So there – the alleged domestic assaulter is really a family values kind of guy!
