Appeals court clears way for NFL's 6-game suspension of Ezekiel Elliott

Not Released

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott's future is in the hands of the 5th Circuit Court.

The six game suspension of Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott for domestic violence was reinstated Thursday afternoon.

Notre Dame's Mike Brey shows support for coach bashed by LaVar Ball
Chino Hills' former Coach Steve Baik helped the school to its 35-0 record on a previous season before leaving for Fairfax. LaVar will now homeschool LaMelo for his remaining two years of high school.

Two weeks ago, the league sought to throw out Elliott's entire lawsuit to restore the six-game suspension. League-appointed arbitrator Harold Henderson rejected the NFL Players Association's appeal on Elliott's behalf and upheld the suspension imposed by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell under the sport's personal conduct policy. For Elliott owners, it might actually be better for him to immediately start sitting so he's eligible to play when teams are in the fantasy playoffs. This is the same court that ultimately ruled in the NFL's favor against Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the deflate gate scandal.

Effectively, Elliott's appeal case, which upheld his suspension, was dismissed in court and the National Football League is now legally able to follow through on its initial six-game suspension.

Irma's Death Toll Up To 69 In Florida
State officials suspended their license after the evacuation, and owners eventually closed the facility permanently. All of the workers for a Florida nursing home that had 12 patients die after Hurricane Irma have been laid off.

Elliott was never charged by OH authorities. If the NFLPA can't get the suspension overturned in court, then Elliott would miss his first game on October 22, a Week 7 game against the 49ers. Elliott and the NFLPA could file to block the suspension again in the same Texas court or in NY.

Our models project Elliott for 1,067.2 rushing yards, 262.1 receiving yards, and 12.2 total touchdowns the rest of the season; if he is allowed to play the remaining 11 games, of course.
