The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in favor of the National Football League, thus reinstating the six game suspension of Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott.
But the NFL investigated it for 13 months and commissioner Roger Goodell handed Elliott a six-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy on August 11. Stay with KLTV for updates.
Thursday's ruling came down ahead of the Cowboys' bye week, giving him ample time to restart the legal fight. They next play October 22 at San Francisco.

The Fifth Circuit, which ruled against Elliott in a 2-1 decision, believed that the NFLPA filed its case too soon when they originally took the Elliott case to a Texas court back in September, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Elliott was never charged by OH authorities. League-appointed arbitrator Harold Henderson rejected the NFL Players Association's appeal on Elliott's behalf and upheld the suspension imposed by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell under the sport's personal conduct policy. U.S. District Judge Amos L. Mazzant granted the NFLPA's request for a preliminary injunction. The league won its Deflate-gate case against Tom Brady in that court.
The injunction was put in place by a Texas judge who agreed with the argument of an NFL Players Assn. attorney who said Elliott wasn't given a fair chance during his appeals hearing.
