Elliott, 22, is accused by former girlfriend Tiffany Thompson of five domestic assault incidents in July 2016 in Columbus, Ohio, and has been under National Football League investigation, although the city attorney's office already announced he will not face criminal charges.
To add salt to the wounds, the Dallas Cowboys' bye week is in Week 6 meaning he will come back in Week 8, which translates to nearly half a season gone.
LOS ANGELES - As the Dallas Cowboys prepare for life without Ezekiel Elliott for six games, they still have confidence in what they can be offensively, especially in the running game. The big question mark is La'el Collins moving to right tackle. One player to keep an eye on this week is rookie wide receiver Cooper Kupp, who is now listed among the starters. I like the way Darren ran tonight. NFL imposed a six-games suspension on rusher Ezekiel Elliot for allegedly violating the league's personal conduct policy.

"You should understand, however, that your behavior during this event was inappropriate and disturbing, and reflected a lack of respect for women", Jones wrote. "I feel great, just getting out there running, just getting carries and getting warmed up".
Last season, Dak Prescott led the Cowboys to a 13-3 record as Dallas captured the top seed in the NFC before losing to the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round of the playoffs.
The Rams get on the board first on one of the most freakish drives of the preseason thus far.
There are two others on the Cowboys offense many should watch closer this week as well, but don't forget about the defense too. The only catch is Dez will be going head to head against some the NFL's most elite cornerbacks in the league this year according to PFF and reported by one of the podcast's favorite guys in Scott Barrett.
To Elliott fantasy owners: Panic! Add to the fact that the Dallas Cowboys have a Week 6 bye, meaning Zeke will not see the field until Week 8.
"My body still feels good", McFadden said, via the Star-Telegram. That's not what you really deal with.
Garrett has made numerous starters sit out of the preseason games as a precaution and some of the top young players are still on their way back to recovery from injury.
