The overseer of the appeal is Harold Henderson, a lieutenant of Roger Goodell, the NFL commissioner who handed down the six-game suspension for Elliott due to the league's findings in what many consider to be a "he-said/she-said" case involving Elliott ex-girlfriend Tiffany Thompson.

Henderson is best known for hearing the high-profile appeals of former Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy (a suspension he reduced from ten games two four) and NFL Pro Bowl running back Adrian Peterson (a suspension he upheld).

Jones was asked whether Henderson would be neutral on the case to give Elliott hope, but he avoided the answer: "Harold is a really great friend of mine", Jones said.

Last summer, the Columbus city attorney's office chose not to file charges against Elliott because of inconsistent evidence, but the league's personal conduct policy has a lower burden of proof than the legal system.

Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported on Elliott's request, as he gets prepared for Tuesday's appeal of his six-game suspension.

Garrett told reporters on Tuesday that Elliott could either sit out or see as many as eight to 12 snaps in the contest, which amounts to what is a dress rehearsal for the regular season.

Barriers, Cameras in Place for 'Boston Free Speech' Rally
The organizers of Free speech rally earlier distanced themselves from any white supremacist and Neo-Nazi group or ideology. Governor Phil Scott issued a statement by video Thursday saying Vermont must stand up against racism and bigotry.

"I wouldn't do "a what if" on that, " said Jones of the possible results of the process.

According to Article 46 of the collective bargaining agreement, there is no set timeframe in which a decision must be rendered.

It is possible the Cowboys would have to carry Elliott on their initial roster and cut a player to fit under the 53-man limit by September 2.

"I haven't made that decision".

Elliott is the defending rushing champion and was the primary reason the Cowboys thrived in the immediate aftermath of Tony Romo's season-ending injury last preseason.

It is not clear whether the Cowboys would receive a roster exemption until Henderson makes a ruling.
