Jerry Jones: Cowboys have ‘complete zero tolerance’ regarding domestic violence
Running back Ezekiel Elliott will play for the Cowboys on Sunday, just days after his request for a brief administration stay was granted. That means Elliott’s six-game suspension for alleged incidents of domestic violence has been put on hold again.
Elliott told reporters that he hasn’t ever considered accepting his suspension because “it’s bigger than football”.
“This is bigger than a suspension,” the running back said, via the Dallas Morning News. “It’s bigger than football, them [NFL] trying to make me something I’m not. I’m not an abuser. That’s not who I am. This is my name and this is my reputation. This is something I’m going to have to live with beyond football. Every day is worth fighting.”
