The NFL revised its personal conduct policy in 2014 following sharp criticism of a case involving former Baltimore running back Ray Rice.
Elliott didn't play against Los Angeles Rams Saturday night and Garrett has not determined if he will play in the preseason, though Stephen Jones indicated he might play against the Indianapolis Colts Aug. 19. Prescott was nearly flawless quarterback, tallying 10 of 12 passes for 139 yards and a couple of touchdowns. Prescott would go on to start every one of the Cowboys' regular-season games in 2016, having one of the best rookie years for a quarterback in National Football League history.
Without an appeal or a binding ruling decision from Commissioner Roger Goodell, Elliot's suspension would start on September 2nd and he would not be able to return to an active roster until October 23d after the Cowboy's Week 7 game against the San Francisco 49'ers. He could be a difference-maker this year for the Rams.
McCown then had one last shot as the team got the ball back after the two-minute warning, but the Cowboys couldn't move the chains on four tries.
The Dallas Cowboys are living proof that preseason success can do wonders for your team, as their impressive performance last August got momentum rolling for Dak Prescott before he took over as the team's starting quarterback for the year. Kupp is a solid route runner with great hands and size, and he should get plenty of playing time Saturday.
He passed for 435 yards and three touchdowns in the final game of 2015 against the Redskins - his last before an injury kept him out for all of 2016.
Goff and the starters took a seat less than four minutes into the game and let Sean Mannion come in to play at quarterback.
Ezekiel Elliott responded to a six-game suspension levied upon him by the NFL Friday in a tweet late Friday evening.
Quarterback Jared Goff struggled throughout training camp and will under fire heading into both the preseason opener. While Witten still holds himself to a high standard when it comes to fighting domestic violence, he is hopeful the experience will help Elliott mature as a player and person. His passer rating of 63.6 would have been the NFL's worst if he played enough to qualify among the rest of the league's starters. As is typical in these preseason affairs, the two teams combined for 16 penalties for 131 yards. They are scheduled to play in Dallas in Week 4 on Sunday, Oct. 1.
