Federal Courts Up Holds NFL's Pettiness Suspension Of Ezekiel Elliot

  • Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott

The six-game suspension of Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has been reinstated after a federal appeals court overturned a district court's decision.

A federal judge in Texas blocked the suspension last month, agreeing with the National Football League players' union attorneys that the investigation of the violent allegations appeal was unfair to Elliott.

Per ESPN.com, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel in New Orleans granted the NFL's emergency request to eliminate that injunction by a 2-1 vote Thursday.

Five stories that have North Texas talking: Court clears way for National Football League to suspend Elliott; Dallas Animal Services is doing better; medical cannabis will be available to certain Texans soon; and more. Prosecutors in Columbus, Ohio, decided not to pursue the case, citing conflicting evidence.

Elliott had filed his suit after arbitration proceedings had been completed, but before the arbiter actually came down with a decision.

Yet even after all of this legal back and forth, the matter isn't settled, and it's possible Elliott might not miss any games since the Cowboys are on their bye this week.

Hurricane Ophelia forms in the Atlantic Ocean
On August 9th, the National Hurricane Center updated their 2017 outlook and predicted it was going to be an above average season. While Ophelia may lose the technical aspects that make it a hurricane, it could still pack a punch.

An NFL spokesperson, however, told WFAA that Elliott's suspension begins immediately and that the second-year running back isn't allowed at the Cowboys' facility.

Elliott was not present at that hearing.

But that doesn't mean Elliott will serve the suspension that quickly, if at all. Does he have to follow the practice (in) a fair way? "Our system in the National Football League does not".

Veteran Alfred Morris is the likeliest candidate to receive starting reps, while Darren McFadden and Rod Smith will also figure into the mix.

"We've got really real good alternatives. But we've got an alternative", Jones said. That's the way that I look at it. "And so we're ready if in fact Zeke can't play".
