OAKLAND, Calif. – Ezekiel Elliott is back with the Dallas Cowboys.
Starting at 10 a.m. CT, Elliott was allowed to return to the Cowboys facility in Frisco, Texas, having extinguished his six-game suspension hours after the Cowboys’ victory over the Oakland Raiders by 20-17.

Although Elliott will be at The Star on Monday, however, players will have the day off and will not return to work until Tuesday. His first practice will be on Wednesday in preparation for the game against the Seattle Seahawks on Christmas Eve at AT & T Stadium.
“He will give us an extreme push because he is our guy,” said open wing Dez Bryant. “He is our horse, he gives us that extra boost of happiness because his personality is the way he is, he helps us to raise our spirits with his attitude, passion and love for the game, only to see him back will make us play a lot harder”.
Elliott was suspended for six games after a legal battle allowed him in the first eight games of the season following the NFL’s determination that Elliott violated his personal conduct policy for incidents of domestic violence against his ex-girlfriend in Columbus. , Ohio in the summer of 2016.
The owner and general manager of the Cowboys, Jerry Jones, has defended Elliott’s position during the process, which played a role in the battle against the extension of commissioner Roger Goodell’s contract. Jones has criticized the ability to go above the law since in the case of Elliott criminal charges were never filed. The NFL announced the suspension of Elliott on August 11, more than a year after the alleged incidents occurred.
“We need to have him back and it’s exciting that he’s back in. Zeke is going to energize the entire team,” Jones said. “He’s the energy in the locker room and he’s an example of what a high level is, in terms of domestic violence, he has not done anything wrong as far as I’m concerned, but in the NFL, you do not play six. games or four games, Zeke wants to play in the NFL, we want him to play in the NFL, so we have to abide by that, but make no mistake, Zeke will be a better player and a better person now that he’s back with the Cowboys ”
In the first eight games of the season, Elliott rushed for 783 yards on 191 carries with seven touchdowns. He had at least 83 rushing yards in each of the last four games, with his maximum being 150 yards on 33 carries with two touchdowns in a win against the Washington Redskins on October 29.
