Court Order Again Interrupts Ezekiel Elliott's Six-Game Suspension
A U.S. District judge in N.Y. last night "forced another interruption" in Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension, ordering a temporary restraining order "after hearing oral arguments" from the NFL and NFLPA. This comes after a federal appeals court on Thursday "vacated the preliminary injunction that had allowed him to play in all five of the Cowboys' games so far." The TRO is "good through Oct. 30" or whenever the N.Y. court decides to hold another hearing on "whether Elliott should be granted a preliminary injunction." Judge Paul Crotty filled in for the assigned judge, Katherine Polk Failla, who will "make the more lasting decision on Elliott's fate when she returns" (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 10/18).
