Federal court reinstates Ezekiel Elliott's 6 game suspension

Federal court reinstates Ezekiel Elliott's 6 game suspension

The NFL announced the suspension in August after a yearlong investigation found that on three occasions, Elliott caused physical injury to a girlfriend.

In a 2-1 decision, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has vacated the preliminary injunction on Elliott's suspension and remanded the case back to district court with instructions to dismiss the case.

Elliott is leading the Cowboys with 393 rushing yards on 105 carries with two touchdowns through the first five games.

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. Elliott could still avoid the suspension for now if the NFLPA files for a temporary restraining order in the Southern District of NY and the court grants their request.

The Court of Appeals ruled against the injuction Thursday, overruling the district court's decision.

For now, the NFL's initial domestic violence punishment stands - and the league has been cleared to enforce the 6-game suspension. The Cowboys have a bye this weekend before resuming play October 22 at San Francisco.

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.

A federal judge in Texas blocked the suspension last month. Authorities in Columbus, Ohio, did not charge Elliott with a crime.
