Court Rules in Favor of National Football League in Ezekiel Elliott Suspension

Ezekiel Elliott faces a six-game suspension for violating the league's domestic violence policy

Dallas Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott stands on the sideline in the first half of a preseason NFL football game against the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017, in Arlington, Texas.

A federal appeals court overturned a district court's decision in the Ezekiel Elliott case Thursday, meaning the Dallas Cowboys running back's six-game suspension has been reinstated. The Cowboys have a bye this week.

The NFL previously prevailed at the appellate level in cases involving Adrian Peterson and Tom Brady in which the NFLPA challenged disciplinary measures and scored victories at the district court level.

Elliott's camp, however, is likely to file another temporary restraining order in a NY court to once again fight the six-game span that stems from domestic violence allegations made against him in OH a year ago.

Last month, the National Football League requested an emergency stay of a judge's injunction that allowed Elliott to play indefinitely, saying the court didn't have subject matter jurisdiction to make the decision.

Mike Phelan: 'Jose Mourinho bringing fear factor back to Old Trafford'
United's hopes for the season after their strong start will feel even more promising with those two back in the squad. Mourinho initially signed a three-year deal in the summer of 2016 when he replaced Louis Van Gaal.

The hope was that the Fifth Circuit judges will agree where Mazzant did not. Elliott can not show it was futile to wait for a final decision simply because he believed the arbitrator would issue an unfavorable ruling.

The ruling clears the way for the National Football League to enforce the six-game domestic violence suspension they handed Elliott this offseason.

Elliott was originally suspended by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in August after the league concluded he had several physical confrontations last summer with his former girlfriend, Tiffany Thompson.

Elliott was not present at that hearing.

Elliott, 22, has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing.
