NFLPA denied notes in Ezekiel Elliott's suspension appeal

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

Arbitrator Harold Henderson, who was appointed by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to hear the appeal, has denied a request from Elliott's representatives to make his accuser, former girlfriend Tiffany Thompson, available to testify, according to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio. But at this point, it's seemingly looking like the cards are stacked against Elliott for Tuesday's appeal.

"Well, I don't want to speculate about that at all", he said.

For awhile, it seemed like the Cowboys might keep Elliott out of action for the duration of the four-game slate, but ahead of this Saturday's matchup with the Oakland Raiders, head coach Jason Garrett said the plan is for Zeke to get some carries.

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. Following that, Henderson will be given time to assess the arguments before rendering a final verdict, and when he makes a decision regarding Elliott's suspension will have an impact on the Cowboys roster.

While Ezekiel Elliott will attend his own suspension appeal hearing in NY this Tuesday, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones will not.

Iraqi forces retake 3 more areas of IS-held Tal Afar
Meanwhile, Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari said the campaign against the militant group in Tal Afar would end soon. The jihadist group has lost much of the territory it controlled and thousands of its fighters have been killed.

Thompson is the alleged victim in Elliott's domestic violence case. "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".

"Former policeman, former attorney".

Elliott had six games for 18 yards and caught two passes for six years in one series of work.

Despite there being several witnesses who spoke to police and signed sworn affidavits that call into question several key parts of Thompson's claims against Elliott, the NFL's decision basically says it believes her version of what happened over Elliott. The 10 snaps comprised Dallas' first offensive possession, and Elliott was removed after the Cowboys connected on a 42-yard field goal.
