Ezekiel Elliot's suspension includes 49ers game

Dallas Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott has been suspended for six games by the NFL

Dallas Cowboys' running back, Ezekiel Elliott, took to Twitter to voice his disapproval against a six-game suspension by the NFL. Elliott's suspension, according to the league, stems from allegations of domestic violence made by his ex-girlfriend, Tiffany Thompson, in July 2016.

"Mr. Elliott and his team of representatives are extremely disappointed with the NFL's decision", the Dallas Cowboys star's camp said in a statement.

Elliott faced a domestic violence claim along with a motley of off the field mishaps violating the personal conduct policy.

In June, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was advised by four independent advisers who reviewed the league's investigative evidence in the case.

ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the six game suspension being given to Elliott. Still, the National Football League is within its rights to levy discipline on a player even in the absence of legal charges.

Without an appeal, the suspension would begin September 2 and he would be eligible to return to the active roster October 23, the day after the Cowboys' Week 7 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Elliott, who has denied the allegations against him, has three days to appeal the ruling by the league.

Pakistan's Sharif sets off on 'homecoming' procession
The media quoted Sharif as saying that while the people's mandate catapulted him to power, he was ousted "in a minute". Qamar Zaman Kaira of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) said that there could be around 10,000 people with Sharif.

Thompson claims that during the week of July 16, 2016, Elliott physically attacked her multiple times, leaving her with bruises on her neck, legs and arms.

Last season, Elliott led the league in rushing with 1,631 yards and touchdowns with 15.

Elliott is expected to appeal the decision. In March, he was videotaped exposing a woman's breast during a St. Patrick's Day parade. "This is just pure assault or domestic violence".

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said last week that he did not expect a suspension to be coming for Elliott.

North Korea Tensions Hit Global Stock Markets
Elsewhere, the German Dax has opened down 0.80%, France's CAC40 index is down 0.87%, and the Euro Stoxx 50 is down 0.81%. Energy stocks fell along with crude prices as investors kept an eye on the latest company earnings and geopolitical news.

With heavy expectations this season on the Cowboys, QB Dak Prescott and the receivers will have to carry the offense without Elliot.
