In the tweet, which contained a screenshot of a note with no accompanying text, Elliott recognized and apologized for the distraction his off-field behavior has caused.

The 22-year-old running back tweeted a statement Friday in response to the suspension, saying he was "surprised and disappointed" by the decision.

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot has been suspended for six games by the National Football League for violating the personal conduct policy. The Columbus city attorney's office decided last September that Elliott wouldn't face charges.

The 2016 National Football League rushing leader was suspended despite prosecutors in Columbus, Ohio, deciding a year ago not to pursue the case involving Elliott's girlfriend at the time in the same city where he starred for Ohio State. It's within his CBA-dictated power to go beyond that, but that doesn't mean his league partners have to agree with it.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Elliott has three days to appeal the suspension. "The NFL's findings are replete with factual inaccuracies and erroneous conclusions and it "cherry picks" so-called evidence to support its conclusion while ignoring other critical evidence".
