The NFL has copies of medical records and other witness testimony.

Originally Posted by NFL Statement
Ezekiel Elliott of the Dallas Cowboys was notified today by the NFL that he will be suspended without pay for the team's first six 2017 regular-season games for violating the league's Personal Conduct Policy.

Over the course of the last year, the league conducted an extensive investigation. League investigators interviewed more than a dozen witnesses, including Ms. Tiffany Thompson, who had alleged multiple instances of physical violence in July 2016, and Mr. Elliott. The league also consulted with medical experts. League investigators examined all available evidence, including photographic and digital evidence, thousands of text messages and other records of electronic communications.

Pursuant to the Personal Conduct Policy, Commissioner Goodell sought the views of four external advisors (see below) to assist him in evaluating potential violations. These experts range in experience from law enforcement, judicial and public service, and other specialized subject areas.

The advisors participated in a meeting on June 26, 2017 in New York City with Elliott, who was represented by his legal team and the NFL Players Association. The group also reviewed the league's investigative reports and materials, the expert medical reports, and multiple NFL Players Association submissions on Elliott's behalf.

In a letter to Elliott advising him of the decision, Todd Jones, the NFL's Special Counsel for Conduct, said these advisors "were 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."

After reviewing the record, and having considered the views of the independent advisors, the commissioner determined that the credible evidence established that Elliott engaged in conduct that violated NFL policy.

Elliott may appeal this decision within three days. If he does not appeal, Elliott's suspension will begin September 2, the day of final roster reductions for NFL teams. He is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games. Elliott will be eligible to return to the team's active roster on Monday, October 23 following the Cowboys' Sunday, October 22 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

^Sounds like the NFL found evidence not released to the public or they are trying show that they are a no tolerance league.

The Cowboys will still get enough rushing production from McFadden/Morris. We also get to see how Dak performs without an elite RB.

NYG, @DEN, @AZ, LAR, GB, BYE, @SF

Idk 2-4 looks like a decent sized probability. McFadden's rushing production was fine when they were 4-12, Zeke had the threat of big runs that the backups dont. Beating NYG week 1 would be enormous, i think the next two will be really tough, Denver's pass defense is awesome.

I expect Elliott's suspension to be reduced to 4 games upon appeal, with the understanding that the St. Patrick's Day investigation would also be dropped.

Not a pretty story and no one looks good here (Elliott, NFL, and the alleged victim).

Curious, how are the NFL and the alleged victim not looking good here?
NFL because Elliot is another example of a shitty person employed by the league?

NFL dragged on this case for a very long time and made a number of factually inaccurate statements in their announcements.

The alleged victim was caught making false statements to other witnesses and the police.

I don't think there any good guys here.

One of the parties is considerably worse than the others. That is without question.

Please just stop with this False equivalency crap.
