Elliott, Cowboys await another hearing on 6-game suspension

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) Ezekiel Elliott and the Dallas Cowboys should soon find out if the running back will be eligible to play the rest of the season.

Elliott has another hearing Monday to decide whether he'll serve a six-game suspension as a result of a yearlong NFL investigation that found he had multiple physical confrontations in 2016 with his girlfriend at the time.

"We need him, but what is important is that he gets a fair shake," owner Jerry Jones said Sunday after Elliott ran for 150 yards and two touchdowns in a 33-19 victory over the Washington Redskins. "Zeke has in no way, by any standard, done anything wrong. He's done nothing wrong. We, the league, have tried to say that he's done something that we disagree with. We all don't agree with that. So I want him to get a fair shot. And he deserves that."
