Ezekiel Elliott will miss a good portion of the 2017 NFL season, according to reports.

On Friday, Adam Schefter reported that the Cowboys’ running back – and former Ohio State star – will be sidelined for six games of the 2017 season by the NFL. The league has been investigating Elliott for an alleged domestic violence charge that occurred back in July 2016.

Schefter also reported that Elliott plans to appeal the suspension.

He must file the appeal within three business days.

The suspension doesn’t come as a surprise to Elliott, who expected to be suspended for at least some of the upcoming season.

In his rookie campaign, Elliott led the NFL in rushing yards, totaling 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns on the ground. He was a Pro-Bowl selection and was the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.
