Here's how Ezekiel Elliott could get completely banished from the NFL

LOS ANGELES - 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.

"I admit that I am far from flawless, but I plan to continue to work very hard, on and off the field, to mature and earn the great opportunity that I have been given".

The Cowboys are coming off an exceptional season, but will have to figure out a way to replace Elliott.

Jones hasn't made any public statements since the Elliott suspension has been announced. "Although no arrests were made in either episode, the National Football League said that "[even] when a player is not charged with a crime, he may still be found to have violated the [personal conduct] policy if the credible evidence establishes that he engaged in conduct prohibited" by it. The NFL's investigation also looked at photo and digital evidence, thousands of text messages and other electronic communications records.

"Obviously, we knew that this was something that could happen", Jones said.

According to Brandon George of SportsDay, the league could still investigate a July 16 incident at a Dallas bar that allegedly involved Elliott, as well as a man having his nose broken by a punch.

In a letter to Elliott, the National Football League cited incidents of domestic violence reported by Thompson to police in Columbus, Ohio, during July 2016.

The letter states that Goodell determined that the March 11 incident in Dallas "will not be considered separately as a basis for additional discipline" under the NFL's personal conduct policy.

The 22-year-old running back tweeted a statement Friday in response to the suspension, saying he was "surprised and disappointed" by the decision.

Elliott has 72 hours to appeal the suspension, and he is expected to do so.
