29 August, 2017
With the appeal hearing for Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott scheduled for August 29, representatives of the National Football League Players Association made a request to be allowed access to notes made by NFL investigators and Columbus, Ohio law enforcement officials in their respective investigations of allegations that Elliott physically abused a woman in 2016. He not only denied Elliott the opportunity to face his accuser - Thompson will not be present at the appeals hearing - but he has also denied Elliott's legal team access to notes league investigators made during meetings with Thompson. So stay tuned. The expectation is that Henderson will decide the appeal swiftly, giving Elliott and the Cowboys time to figure out their options before their regular-season opener September 10 against the Giants. The NFL has already mishandled numerous domestic violences cases and does not want to be accused of letting it happen again.
He is now appealing a six-game regular season suspension after a series of domestic violence incidents that violated the league's conduct policy.
"He's got his representatives that work with him on that", Jones said.
Jones was asked whether Henderson would be neutral on the case to give Elliott hope, but he avoided the answer: "Harold is a really great friend of mine", Jones said.
"I haven't made that decision".

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett praised Elliott's game and the work he puts in every day on the practice field.
According to ESPN's Todd Archer, Elliott played with the first-team offense against the scout team on Wednesday. The deadline to get down to 53 players falls on September 2.
If the suspension is upheld or even reduced, the Cowboys will go with McFadden, Rod Smith and Alfred Morris at tailback in Elliott's absence.
It is not clear whether the Cowboys would receive a roster exemption until Henderson makes a ruling.
