ZEKE WON’T FIGHT 6-GAME SUSPENSION
The Ezekiel Elliott drama may finally be over. Elliot’s attorney said in a statement today that Zeke will no longer fight the appeal. He will serve out the full length of his suspension. Zeke served the first game of the 6-game suspension Sunday, when the Cowboys took on the Atlanta Falcons. Zeke was clearly missed as the Falcons gave the Cowboys a good ole’ a** spanking 27-7. Things don’t get any easier this week when the Philadelphia Eagles bring their league-best 8-1 record to Texas. Zeke will be eligible to return to the Cowboys in week 16 when the team takes on the Seattle Seahawks. By then, the Cowboys could easily be out of playoff contention, especially if they lose this game against the Eagles Sunday night. Which leads me to ask the question, why didn’t Zeke just get his six game suspension out of the way early on in the season when the games didn’t mean as much, if he was going to end up not fighting the suspension until all appeal efforts were exhausted?
