On Friday afternoon, Elliott's representatives called into question the accuser's honesty and motives, while also casting aspersions on the league's investigation. In other words, Elliott could lose out on millions if he were to suffer a career-ending injury during the reminder of the deal. The advisors range in experience from law enforcement, judicial and public service, and other specialized subject areas. Elliott and the NFL Players Association turned over phone records and documents related to the case to the league back in May.
However, if the appeal carries over into the regular season, Elliott will be eligible to play until a final decision is made. In the NFL's letter informing Elliott of his suspension, the league said the incident was "inappropriate and disturbing, and reflected a lack of respect for women". Because Dallas has a bye for Week 6, Elliott wouldn't return until after the Week 7 game against the 49ers.
Elliott was accused of hitting his ex-girlfriend while the two were in a auto together.
The woman told police Elliott assaulted her on five separate occasions over the course of a week in July 2016, according to the Columbus (Ohio) City Attorney's Office. Because issues had been raised about the accuser's credibility, the league made clear in its letter to Elliott that it did not rely exclusively on her account.
Elliott was a difference-maker in 2016 as Dallas went 13-3.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has repeatedly defended Elliott, recently saying that his review of the situation suggested "not one thing - that had anything to do with domestic violence". A woman identified as Elliott's girlfriend claimed the running back assaulted her while the two were in a vehicle, Bleacher Report noted. Wilson could face a suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. The policy gave Commissioner Roger Goodell authority to suspend players for at least six games in domestic cases, with or without a conviction.
The statement also cites an incident where Elliott's accuser allegedly lied about being pulled out of her vehicle and assaulted. Dallas police have suspended that investigation because they could not contact the victim nor find witnesses.
