Ezekiel Elliott's Preliminary Injunction Denied, Suspension Back in Place

Ezekiel Elliott's Preliminary Injunction Denied, Suspension Back in Place

His 0.07 Rushing Net Expected Points per play this season rank 3rd out of the 21 running backs with at least 100 carries.

Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension was reinstated by a judge in the Southern District Court of NY on Monday, Oct. 30.

But as of this moment, Elliott will not be allowed to play in the 5-3 Cowboys' game against the Falcons on Sunday.

In an October 29th victory at FedEx Field, Elliott rushed for a season-high 150 yards and two touchdowns vs. Washington.

But as long as the NFLPA and Elliott seek that expedited appeal, the winding legal drama will continue. In that case, Elliott would miss the Cowboys' home game against the Eagles on November 19 and would be eligible to return for the season finale, a December 31 game at Philadelphia.

The league was willing to do that in Week 1. Elliott was originally suspended for violating the league's personal conduct policy, which stemmed from a very tumultuous offseason experience. Elliott's suspension will add to that total, in advance of the offseason calculation of bonuses which were or weren't accounted for already.

The NFL Players Association has reportedly told ESPN that Elliott will not play "while we argue".

After several court cases and appeals, a United States district judge ruled last week to deny Elliott's request to block the suspension.

Elliott is second in the NFL with 783 rushing yards and tied for the league lead with seven rushing scores. Elliott's six-game suspension for alleged domestic violence incidents is back in place as of now.
