Faulk: Elliott understands he needs to mature

From ESPN - August 13, 2017

Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk says Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott "totally understands" that he needs to mature following Friday's announcement by the NFL that Elliott has been suspended for six games following a domestic violence investigation.

"Obviously, we all have to grow up in life and make mistakes, and sometimes some of those mistakes cost you dearly," Faulk said, according to the Dallas Morning News. "It's another thing of just understanding the magnitude of what's around you and how things are."

Elliott and Faulk spoke Saturday before the Cowboys' 13-10 preseason loss to the Los Angeles Rams in which the Dallas running back did not play. Faulk was in Los Angeles for his announcing duties with NFL Network.

They have known each other since Elliott's high school days. Faulk previously said he does not consider himself a mentor to Elliott but rather a friend. The Hall of Famer has said he wished he had someone to guide him at the start of his NFL career.
