Ezekiel Elliott’s Six-Game Suspension Is Back On

Chicago Bears

The on-again, off-again suspension story surrounding Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is back on. A federal judge has denied the NFLPA’s request for a preliminary injunction, meaning the six-game suspension handed down by the NFL in August has been restored.

To reset the situation:

After playing the last two weeks after receiving a temporary restraining order on Oct. 17, Elliott’s suspension will begin Sunday when the Cowboys play the Kansas City Chiefs. From there, Elliott will miss games against the Atlanta Falcons, Philadelphia Eagles, Los Angeles Chargers, Washington Redskins, and the New York Giants. He will be eligible to return on December 17 against the Oakland Raiders in Week 15. The Cowboys will miss Elliott and his 690 rushing yards, which rank third in the NFL.

Elliott has 24 hours from when the ruling was handed down to consider his appeal options, which could be limited at this stage of the proceedings.
