The court cleared the way for the NFL’s six-game suspension for Ezekiel Elliott.
A federal appeals court ruled in favor of the NFL today, clearing the way for Ezekiel Elliott’s six-game suspension to be upheld.
The Dallas Cowboys’ star running back, originally suspended by the NFL following an investigation into domestic violence allegations, had been playing this season after he appealed the decision.
Here’s a good explanation of what happens next:
Bottom line: NFL won this round as 5th Circuit vacated Ezekiel Elliott's preliminary injunction & Eastern District of Texas has to dismiss case. So, his 6-game suspension is back on and could start after bye. Zeke's side will now have to refile and process starts over in New York

Elliott has totaled 393 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns for the Cowboys (2-3) this season.
Dallas has a bye on Sunday before playing at San Francisco on Sunday, Oct. 22.
