Ezekiel Elliott’s Suspension Was Upheld
The Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott won’t play this Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons or any time soon after the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals denied his request to continue his stay of suspension.
This news coming after last weeks roller-coaster ride. First Elliott’s temporary restraining order was dissolved and his motion for a preliminary injunction was denied by a federal judge. But later in the week, Elliott was granted an administrative stay so a three-judge panel could review his appeal over the preliminary injunction.

What does this mean for the Cowboys moving forward?
Zeke’s suspension is in effect starting today, he won’t return until the game against the Seattle Seahawks on Christmas Eve (Dec. 24th to all of you atheist). Zeke will be watching the Dallas Cowboys’ next six games: at Atlanta, vs. Philadelphia, vs. Los Angeles Chargers, vs. Washington Redskins, at New York Giants, at Oakland from who knows where.
