‘I’m Not an Abuser’

Ezekiel Elliott says he’s willing to fight his domestic violence suspension for as LONG AS IT TAKES TO CLEAR HIS NAME … because, “I’m not an abuser.”
The Dallas Cowboys running back just explained why he’s so insistent on fighting the NFL instead of serving his 6-game suspension in a strong locker statement, according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson.
“This is bigger than a suspension. It’s bigger than football. It’s them trying to make me something I’m not. I’m not an abuser. That’s not who I am.”
He continued, “This is my name and this is my reputation. That’s something that I have to live with beyond football so, everyday is worth fighting for.”
Zeke just won another appeal, clearing him to play Sunday against the Chiefs — but his future beyond that is still in limbo.
