Ezekiel Elliott's attorneys wanted to settle case, National Football League not interested

Ezekiel Elliott's attorneys wanted to settle case, National Football League not interested

"It was a little rust; I'm not going to lie", Elliott said.

The Second Circuit Court of Appeals has scheduled the hearing for Elliott's request of an injunction to overturn his six-game suspension for Thursday at 2 p.m. EDT, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. "Every day is worth fighting".

In the WMSC interview above, we discussed the Judge Failia ruling that shocked those following Elliott's story and made it likely that he would not play for the next six games starting Sunday.

Elliott has repeatedly denied that he assaulted his then-girlfriend, although his comments from the team's training facility in Frisco, Tex., were among his most forceful on the subject.

Dan Quinn and the Atlanta Falcons will operate under the assumption that Ezekiel Elliott will play for the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10.

Elliott received an administrative stay from the NY federal court last Friday, reinstating his eligibility for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He was never charged with a crime by the Columbus, Ohio, authorities who investigated the allegations.

An appeals court granted Elliott a stay as well as a motion from NFL Player Association lawyers for an expedited appeal Friday morning. The 2nd Circuit said its brief order does not constitute a resolution on the merits of the court case.

It's was the continuation of a season-long process after he was granted a preliminary injunction, blocking the suspension for district judge in Sherman Texas, the Tuesday before the season opener.

Ultimately, this battle between the National Football League and Elliott/the NFLPA rages on and appears no closer to being resolved.
