Ezekiel Elliott Suspension Reinstated By Federal Court

The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in favor of the NFL, and has effectively re-suspending Ezekiel Elliott.

The Dallas Cowboy Running Back is facing a 6-game suspension again after the court ruled against him in a 2-1 decision. Elliott already lost his appeal to the NFL League Offices earlier this year.

Once he filed his federal suit, a judge placed a restraining order on the suspension, allowing him to play while the courts examined the case. Today marks the end of that phase of the process, which lifts the restraining order, and places the NFL suspension back into place.

But, with the Cowboys on their bye week, this will not keep Elliott off the field right away, and according to NFL.com, this might not be over yet. Here’s what they had to say:

“However, the NFLPA is expected to re-file the case with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York and seek a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction in order to keep Elliott playing, according to Gabe Feldman, director of the Tulane Sports Law Program.”

So it is still unknown in Elliott will actually miss any playing time this season.
