Ezekiel Elliott's appeal hearing expected to last through Thursday

Ezekiel Elliott's appeal hearing expected to last through Thursday”

Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott's appeal of his six-game suspension over a domestic violence incident is headed for a second day with no timeline for completion of the hearing.

After Elliott submitted the request for appeal through the NFL Players Association on August 15, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell tabbed former league executive Harold Henderson to oversee the appeal hearing, as allowed by the collective bargaining agreement.

Elliott was suspended in early August due to a violation of the NFL's personal conduct policy. The outspoken owner believes there's no evidence to prove Elliott's guilt as he said on 105.3 The Fan, transcription via ESPN's Todd Archer. "Every person that has any sense at all understands domestic violence and abhors it".

"On the other hand with what we are today and what we're trying to be relative to addressing it in the league, [it] has all kinds of issues and it should". For 10 years before I bought the Cowboys I was the head of (a) battered women (organization) of Arkansas. That's all I want to say about it. "Even though others would say that the issue needs this kind of focus and you're using the National Football League for visibility". He not only denied Elliott the opportunity to face his accuser - Thompson will not be present at the appeals hearing - but he has also denied Elliott's legal team access to notes league investigators made during meetings with Thompson.

Elliott's hearing for the appeal of his six-game suspension began on Tuesday and lasted almost 10 hours, according to a report. McFadden has never been named to a Pro Bowl, but rushed for 1,089 yards two seasons ago behind Dallas' powerful offensive line. The NFL suspended its 2016 rushing leader after concluding that he was physically abusive toward his then-girlfriend in OH last summer.
