On Monday, Fox Sports' Cris Carter said on FS1's Undisputed that "information would come out" about Elliott's case and that the 22-year-old running back would soon face a suspension. Elliott would be able to play while commissioner Roger Goodell - or his designee - hears the appeal, but the hearing doesn't have to be held at any specific time.
So with Elliott already being one of the best backs in the league and one of the main reasons for the team's success last season, it comes as no surprise that Jones would be as upset as he appears to be. His representatives released a statement, via NFL Network, saying they plan to appeal the decision, and provided the reasons why.
"Our offices have been engaged in this matter since last July and have worked hand in hand with the Columbus Prosecutor's office as well as the National Football League with their respective investigations". In a statement, Elliott denied the woman's accusations.
Several months before, Thompson had told police in Florida that Elliott had pushed her against a wall and injured her left shoulder.
"I approach every day like I'm the starter because you never know what's going to happen on any given day", Morris said.
Dallas is set to open its regular season on Sunday, Sept. 10, hosting the New York Giants in primetime on NBC.
Should the Cowboys have to go without Elliott to start the season, here's who a look at will be called upon to pick up the slack.
The NFL revealed that it wasn't simply just the domestic violence case that helped them reach their decision. In July, he was involved in a bar fight in Dallas and was accused of breaking a man's nose.
The league also reviewed videos and photos of Elliott pulling down a woman's shirt, which exposed her breast, during a St. Patrick's Day parade rooftop party in March.
