Court Denies Elliott’s Appeal, Suspension Begins On Sunday

NFL Dallas

The U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals has denied Ezekiel Elliott’s request for an injunction. That means his six-game suspension from the NFL is on again. As of now, Elliott is suspended for this weekend’s game in Atlanta. He will be eligible to return on week 16 against the Seattle Seahawks.

The Cowboys have won three straight games and are second in the NFC East behind Philadelphia. A big part of their recent success has been the run game and Ezekiel Elliott. Now the Cowboys will have a running back by committee approach for the next month and a half.  

Head coach Jason Garrett said, “We try to be pretty balanced in our work with the running backs. Each of those guys will get work if we have a set of plays. Each of the backup guys will get a percentage of those plays, and that hasn’t really changed based on his workload.”

Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden are likely to get the most carries against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.
