Well, the six-game suspension for Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is back on. A U.S. District Court judge has denied his request for a preliminary injunction to block the suspension until the legal process plays out in court. The ruling came after hearing arguments from the NFL and Players’ Association on Monday. The decision has been stayed 24 hours to allow both camps to prepare for a possible appeal. As of now, Elliott is set to miss upcoming games against the Chiefs, Falcons, Eagles, Chargers, Redskins and Giants before being eligible to return against the Raiders on December 17th.
Elliott was suspended six games for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. That was related to domestic violence charges by his former girlfriend in 2016, although Elliott was never arrested or charged.
