Ezekiel Elliott's suspension on hold once again

Ezekiel Elliott's suspension on hold once again

Temporary restraining order puts suspension...

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is eligible to play again as a NY judge granted his motion for a temporary restraining order blocking the six-game suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.

The Dallas Morning News, the New York Times, and Sports Illustrated have coverage.

Bobby Portis punched Nikola Mirotic in practice, and now neither will be playing in games anytime soon. Mirotic suffered multiple broken bones in his face as well as a concussion on Tuesday.

It means that Elliott will be back at practice Wednesday and be on the field when the team resumes play Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers after last week's bye.

Elliott and the NFLPA filed for a temporary restraining order (TRO) in the Southern District of New York Tuesday, and U.S. District Judge Paul Crotty ruled "irreparable harm" would be caused if Elliott served the suspension because he would miss more than one-third of the season. The NFL will be given its chance to argue against the ruling October 30. Judge Failla is on vacation.

The NFL temporarily can't enforce its suspension of Elliott.

The Microsoft Surface Book 2 can be customized with an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor and up to NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1060 graphics. An ambient light sensor changes screen brightness and a proximity sensor lets the device know that you've closed it.

The decision was the latest twist to the court-room saga surrounding Elliott, who was banned by the National Football League over allegations of assaulting an ex-girlfriend. Elliott has denied the allegations.

The NFL won a court battle last Thursday when a three-judge panel from the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals vacated the earlier injunction blocking the six-game suspension imposed on Elliott.

But Crotty's opinion (PDF) said the ruling in Brady's case did not hold that courts can't review arbitration decisions for fundamental fairness-and Elliott and the players' union have asserted the fundamental fairness issue here.
