Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones expressed support for running back Ezekiel Elliott, who was suspended six games Friday, but also said the team believes in replacements Darren McFadden, Alfred Morris and Rod Smith. But Elliott and his representation plan to fight the suspension arduously. Dak Prescott will also be missing from action.
Earlier Friday, Elliott's representatives responded to the news, saying the league's findings are "replete with factual inaccuracies".

ValuEngine downgraded Avis Budget Group from a "strong-buy" rating to a "buy" rating in a research note on Tuesday, May 23rd. As of the end of the quarter Proficio Capital Partners LLC had acquired a total of 156 shares growing its stake by 1,733.3%.
If the NFL determines that there is enough evidence that Elliott was responsible for the punch, there is a chance the Cowboys running back could face further league discipline.

"I am both surprised and disappointed by the NFL's decision today, and I strongly disagree with the League's findings", the statement read. "I recognize the distraction and disruption that all of this has caused my family, teammates, the Dallas Cowboys organization as well as my fans - for that I am sincerely sorry".
Elliott was seen on the field doing pregame sprints, and did not look to be injured. If we have to play with other running backs, we like the running backs on this team. The Columbus City Attorney's office announced in September that it would not pursue charges against Elliott because of "conflicting and inconsistent information", but the National Football League can penalize a player even without legal charges. Elliott's suspension is just the latest in a long list of Cowboys off-field woes during the summer. In his rookie season, Elliott rushed for 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns.
