Jason Witten: Ezekiel Elliott has chance to grow from suspension

August 13th, 2017

A day after the Dallas Cowboys learned that they could be without Ezekiel Elliott for the first six games of the season, they expressed support for their teammate, but Jason Witten's perspective comes from a different place. As a child, Witten's family was affected by domestic violence, and his foundation serves women and families that have experienced it. "Look, there's no place for a man to put his hand on a woman, and most of you guys know that it's a situation that's affected my family as a kid, and I put a lot of work and attention and have a platform to step out and speak on stopping domestic violence," Witten said after Saturday's 13-10 preseason loss to the Los Angeles Rams. The NFL announced the suspension Friday after a 13-month investigation into allegations that Elliott engaged in physical violence against a former girlfriend in July 2016.
