Ezekiel Elliott will play Sunday.
The legal back-and-forth between Ezekiel Elliott and the NFL continued on Friday. Elliott, who earlier this week was not granted a preliminary injunction by the U.S. District Court, which resulted in the reinstatement of his six-game suspension, has now been granted an administrative stay by the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit that will allow him to play in this Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Ian Rapoport posted a screenshot of the court order.

Adam Schefter adds that Elliott’s “fate” will be decided next week.
Ezekiel Elliott fate decided next week; if 2nd Cir panel reverses Judge Failla's rejection of PI, almost certain to last through end of year

Elliott was suspended for six games by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell back in August after an investigation into domestic violence allegations made by a former girlfriend. It remains to be seen whether he’ll ever serve that suspension.
