Cowboys Jerry States Support Of Zeke Arbitrator Harold Henderson

Ezekiel Elliott To Play Against Oakland Saturday, Will Be Only Action Of Preseason

According to the Star-Telegram, two decisions by Henderson already make Elliott's appeal seem to be an uphill battle: He denied a request to make the woman who accused Elliott of domestic violence available to testify at the appeals hearing, and he denied requests for notes or transcripts from the NFL's meetings with Elliott's accuser. His appeal hearing is set for Tuesday in NY.

"I wouldn't do "a what if" on that, " said Jones of the possible results of the process.

Jones was asked whether Henderson would be neutral on the case to give Elliott hope, but he avoided the answer: "Harold is a really great friend of mine", Jones said.

The suspension is scheduled to begin September 2 and Elliott is eligible to return to the Cowboys' roster on October 23, one day after the team's Week 7 road game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Sole Winner of Second-Largest Powerball Jackpot Claims Prize
Collectively, Powerball players in Minnesota won $2.85 million, according to officials at state lottery headquarters in Roseville. The government will withhold 25% of that before the money ever gets to the victor , and the rest has to be paid at tax time.

Elliott continues to maintain his innocence of domestic violence allegations of a former girlfriend and Jones remains blindsided by the NFL's decision to suspend his star player after promising there would be no discipline because he believes there was no evidence of domestic violence. Both sides are slated to have final arguments following the appeal hearing next Friday, September 1. "He was at my [Hall of Fame] party, and so you weren't at that party unless you were a good friend, I promise you that".

"I don't know", Jones joked. He's come through it the hard way.

"I do think Zeke playing in the game past year against Seattle was good for him and good for our team", Garrett said. While we can anticipate the continued development of quarterback Dak Prescott and properly credit the Cowboys' superb offensive line, it shouldn't be taken for granted that the Cowboys will successfully navigate their first six games if Elliott's appeal fails and he does not get an injunction from the court that would allow him to play.
