Today the NFL suspended Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott of bruising and beating her badly.
Ezekiel Elliott’s accuser took several photos of the injuries she claims she suffered at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys running back, showing bruising on her arms, hands, neck and legs, according to TMZ Sports.
Zeke’s accuser claims she suffered the injuries during the week of July 16, when Elliott allegedly attacked her 3 times on 3 separate occasions.
Elliott told police investigators he did not cause the bruises, claiming the woman suffered the injuries in a bar fight.
Today the NFL made a decision and Zeke plans to appeal the suspension saying it was false claims.
Here is what the NFL said in the letter to Zeke:
On July 17, the NFL says Elliott attacked Thompson at the Canvasback Lane apartments in Columbus, Ohio.
“You used physical force that caused injuries to Ms. Thompson’s arms, neck and shoulders.”
On July 19, the NFL says there was another altercation at the Canvasback Lane apartments.
“You used physical force that caused injuries to Ms. Thompson’s face, arms, wrists and hands.”
On July 21, the NFL says there was a 3rd incident at the Canvasback Lane apartments.
“You used physical force that caused injuries to Ms. Thompson’s face, neck, arms knee and hips.”
The league says it went to prosecutors to find out why Elliott was not charged with a crime. The NFL was told, “We never concluded that she was lying to us … we generally believed her for all of the incidents.”
Prosecutors had previously said there was “conflicting and inconsistent information across all incidents, resulting in concern regarding the sufficiency of the evidence to support the filing of criminal charges.”
The standard for prosecution is much higher than the standard for the NFL to mete out discipline.
