Court reinstates suspension of Ezekiel Elliott

Ezekiel Elliott's 6-Game Suspension Back On ... For Now

Five stories that have North Texas talking: Court clears way for National Football League to suspend Elliott; Dallas Animal Services is doing better; medical cannabis will be available to certain Texans soon; and more.

Elliott was set to miss the first six games of the 2017 season, but an injunction in September put his suspension on hold.

There was a three-judge panel that decided the NFLPA and Elliott did not have the right to file in the Eastern District of Texas prior to the conclusion of the suspension appeal process, and the case belongs in the NFL's backyard of NY.

"We could very well have the same results that we had in Texas" district court and Elliott could be again granted a temporary restraining order", sports law attorney Daniel Wallach, a partner at Becker & Poliakoff, told USA TODAY Sports.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told 105.3 The Fan on Friday that Elliott didn't get fair treatment from the National Football League in the case.

But as the Cowboys enter into their bye in Week Six, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has now vacated that preliminary injunction. "He could end up getting suspended for the last few weeks of the regular season and depending on the Cowboys record, the playoffs". Because the opinion dismissed Elliott's case for lack of subject matter jurisdiction, the fight over his underlying claims remain undecided.

In the meantime, Elliott has played in five games for the Cowboys.

Although Elliott was never charged in the domestic violence case, National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell suspended him for six games following a year-long investigation into the accusations made by his former girlfriend, Tiffany Thompson. Columbus, Ohio, authorities chose not to press charges against Elliott for incidents in July 2016 involving a former girlfriend because of inconsistent statements and evidence.
