Kurt Warner Calls Ezekiel Elliott Suspension a 'Big Blow' for Cowboys

Recently enshrined Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner said the NFL's six-game suspension for Ezekiel Elliott is a "big blow" to the Dallas Cowboys and a "disappointing" situation.

On Saturday, TMZ Sports passed along comments from the two-time Most Valuable Player, who also discussed the potential for Elliott to receive a lifetime ban for future violations.

"Let's just hope it doesn't get to that point," Warner said.

Austin Knoblauch of NFL.com provided details from the league's investigation into Elliott's alleged actions involving Tiffany Thompson, a former girlfriend who made domestic violence allegations last July.

The league wrote in its statement it was "of the view that there is substantial and persuasive evidence supporting a finding that [Elliott] engaged in physical violence against Ms. Thompson on multiple occasions during the week of July 16, 2016."

There are signs an extended legal battle, perhaps similar to the one involving New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady following the Deflategate saga, could be on the horizon, though.
