Cowboys running back Elliott's appeal of ban extended another day

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott's appeal of his six-game suspension stretches to its third day on Thursday, with little indication so far as to how arbitrator Harold Henderson will rule on the case. Elliott reportedly testified under oath on Tuesday when the hearing began. While Elliott was never arrested or charged with a crime in connection to the allegations, NFL officials determined there was sufficient evidence to warrant a suspension under the league's personal conduct policy.

Now, Harold Henderson, who overheard Elliott's appeal of his six-game suspension for violating the NFL's personal-conduct policy, will be tasked with either overturning or upholding the ruling of National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell.

The NFL suspended Elliott for a violation of the player conduct policy after investigating allegations that he physically abused his ex-girlfriend in OH last summer.

The appeal will continue through Thursday, and while Schefter doesn't seem to think that Elliott will get the suspension completely overturned, he believes the six-game ban will be reduced in some capacity. The testimony was allowed in response to the NFL Players Association presenting its own medical forensics expert Tuesday, another source familiar with the hearing told ESPN. Brady's suspension wound up being upheld, but it did not take place until the 2016 season-more than a year after it was initially announced.
