Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott seems ready for a fight, according to his father. Elliott’s dad copied a report from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram about Elliott’s appeal, and said this in a tweet on Monday morning:

Elliott, who was suspended by the NFL for six games for an alleged domestic violence incident with his ex-girlfriend in Columbus, OH, is expected to appeal the suspension.
The 22-year-old Elliott was not arrested or charged with a crime in this incident. However, according to the NFL’s investigation, Elliott violated the league’s personal conduct policy.
The NFL investigated Elliott for over a year, and came down with their ruling on Friday.
At this point, Elliott is expected to return Week 8 against the Redskins.
