Earlier today we reported on the fact that the appeals process for Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott appeared like it would be dragging on for some time, but now we have a very specific timetable to share with you.
According to a report from Dallas Cowboys insider Clarence Hill of the Star Telegram, a source has informed him that the process could take two to three days, meaning that the Cowboys won't have long to wait for an answer.
There's even more good news as well for Cowboy fans, according to Hill it sounds like owner Jerry Jones is completely supporting his running back, and has in fact even provided him some legal help.
Jones did not attend the hearing, but had a Cowboys lawyer there supporting Elliott’s defense team of Frank Salzano and Scott Rosenblum as well as two attorneys from the National Football League Players Association, Jeffrey Kessler and Heather McPhee, who both have had previous litigation success against NFL.
Jones continues to maintain that the league had “no evidence” and no cause to suspend Elliott.
But wait, we're not done with the good news just yet. Hill also claims that a source has informed him that the National Football League has no verifiable proof that Elliott was the cause of the injuries found on Tiffany Thompson's body, leaving one to wonder how exactly the league felt they had the right to suspend him in the first place.
Stay tuned because this one is far from over.
