Another twist in the ongoing saga.

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension is back on...again.

A New York District Judge dissolved Elliott's temporary restraining order and denied the NFLPA's preliminary injunction tonight.

According to Michael McCann of Sports Illustrated, the judge cited Tom Brady's case as a precedent for denying Elliott's motion.

Barring a last-minute appeal, Elliott will miss the next six games and won't be eligible until Week 15.

This is bad news for Dallas' playoff push, especially considering Elliott had rushed for 297 yards and four touchdowns the past two weeks.
