Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott denied injunction to block 6-game suspension

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension is back on after a hearing in NY on Thursday saw the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals deny his request for an emergency injunction. The running back will not play Sunday vs. Atlanta and barring another legal plot twist Elliott will miss Dallas's next six games - including November 30 vs. the Redskins.

But as long as the NFLPA and Elliott seek that expedited appeal, the winding legal drama will continue. The suspension came after the National Football League investigated his alleged use of force in the summer of 2016 against his girlfriend.

Although Elliott faced no criminal charges from the case, the NFL probe found him to have been in breach of the league's personal conduct policy. Actually, no. The NFL could have allowed Elliott to play either last week or this week because of the timing of the courts' decisions.


The NFLPA has argued a suspension would irreparably harm Elliott's career.

The difference this week is that Elliott, the NFL's second-leading rusher, was with his teammates.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that Elliott didn't meet the standards to continue blocking the suspension but ordered a hearing as soon as it could be scheduled.
