Appeals court rules against Elliott, clears way for suspension

Bad news for the Dallas Cowboys. a federal appeals court has ruled Ezekiel Elliott's 6-game suspension is back on.

A federal judge in Texas blocked the suspension last month.

When the union filed its case in defense of Elliott in Texas, the N.F.L. filed a separate motion in the Southern District of NY, where it argued that that court was the appropriate venue for the league and players to settle their disputes. To get the full story keep reading below.

Elliott has denied all the allegations that he beat his accuser, Tiffany Thompson, but clearly the National Football League does not agree with his defense.

The appeals court ruled that Elliott and the NFLPA had not exhausted all available options when it asked for the preliminary injunction in a Texas court before the league ruled on Elliott's suspension.

Because the Cowboys do not play this week, the union has more time to file motions before Elliott's suspension might affect his chances of playing in a game. He also has 17 receptions for 134 receiving yards and a score. The second-year running back out of Ohio State has recorded 424 all-purpose yards and scored three touchdowns.
