According to the language in the NFL’s contractual bargaining agreement, Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott‘s suspension appeal is expected to take place on August 29, tweets Adam Schefter of ESPN.com. Although appeal hearings typically are required to be scheduled within ten days of the appeal, the rules are different once the preseason begins. Any suspension appeal filed after the start of the exhibition season is automatically “scheduled for the second Tuesday following the receipt of the notice of appeal,” per the CBA. In Elliott’s case, that date falls two weeks from today on the 29th. Elliott, of course, is currently suspended for the first six games of the season after the NFL found that he violated the league’s personal conduct policy.
