Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has been suspended six games for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy, the league announced Friday.
The suspension is a result of an investigation into an accusation of domestic violence. Elliott has not been charged legally, and he's expected to appeal the league's suspension.

The Cowboys' first six games are against the New York Giants (home), Denver Broncos (away), Arizona Cardinals (away), Los Angeles Rams (home), Green Bay Packers (home) and San Francisco 49ers (away).
Running backs Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris, and the Cowboys' dominant offensive line, will be expected to rise to the occasion if Elliott is out.
