Ezekiel Elliott suspended again for Cowboys after losing latest appeal

Ezekiel Elliott suspended again for Cowboys after losing latest appeal

Ezekiel Elliott's on again, off again suspension is back on after a ruling Thursday afternoon.

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has had his motion for an injunction denied by a three-judge panel from the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. According to SI.com legal expert Michael McCann, that means Elliott might have another ruling before the six-game suspension ends. The NFLPA appealed, and the 2nd Circuit granted a temporary stay for Week 9 that let Elliott take the field on Sunday against the Chiefs.

Though Columbus authorities never filed charges, the NFL leveled the ban on Elliott for violating the league's personal conduct policy. The running back will not play Sunday vs. Atlanta and barring another legal plot twist Elliott will miss Dallas's next six games - including November 30 vs. the Redskins.

If the suspension sticks, Elliott will next be eligible to play against the Seattle Seahawks on December 24.

Elliott and the NFLPA challenged the decision-making process in court, arguing the NFL's investigation was fundamentally unfair to Elliott. The league concluded the Cowboys' second-year Pro Bowler physically harmed former girlfriend Tiffany Thompson in July 2016, the summer before he began his rookie season. That wasn't the case early last week when the 22-year-old was suspended until Friday after a judge rejected his request for a second injunction. Elliott was suspended by the National Football League after accusations of domestic violence by his ex-girlfriend.
