National Football League could still investigate Ezekiel Elliott bar incident

That stern warning came from the league Friday after it announced Elliott's six-game suspension.

"I admit that I am far from ideal, but I plan to continue to work very hard, on and off the field, to mature and to earn the great opportunity that I have been given", he said.

The Cowboys are coming off an exceptional season, but will have to figure out a way to replace Elliott.

Elliott released a statement on Twitter disagreeing with the suspension.

Yahoo's Charles Robinson reported that Elliott "is willing to take this whole suspension appeal through courts if he has to". Sources have described him as "upset" about commissioner Roger Goodell's decision to suspend Elliott. The letter also says two medical experts were consulted regarding identification, causation, and aging of certain injuries to the alleged victim as depicted in relevant photos, and those experts provided written reports.


"Obviously, we knew that this was something that could happen", Jones said.

According to Brandon George of SportsDay, the league could still investigate a July 16 incident at a Dallas bar that allegedly involved Elliott, as well as a man having his nose broken by a punch.

"You should understand, however, that your behavior during this event was inappropriate and disturbing, and reflected a lack of respect for women", Jones wrote.

CNN has not heard back from Elliott's representatives.

Accusing Elliott of committing "multiple instances of physical violence" against a former girlfriend, Tiffany Thompson, the National Football League concluded a year-long investigation with a punishment that Elliott, through his lawyers, has vowed to appeal. The Columbus City Attorney's office announced in September that it would not pursue charges against Elliott because of "conflicting and inconsistent information", but the National Football League can penalize a player even without legal charges.
