Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is appealing his six-game suspension. Elliott officially filed the appeal on Tuesday, the NFL Players' Association announced. Elliott was handed the ban following a year-long domestic violence investigation by the NFL that determined there was "substantial" evidence that he assaulted his ex-girlfriend. Elliott has denied the accusations and will reportedly use the woman's credibility against her during the appeals process. He was never arrested or charged. The 22-year-old Elliott led the NFL in rushing as a rookie last season with 1,631 yards.
