US Appeals Court rules against Elliott, six-game suspension back on

3 Stars from Week 9 Better game Dak Prescott or Terrance Williams?			Kevin Jairaj  USA Today

A three-judge panel in the Second District U.S. Court of Appeals denied his motion for a preliminary injunction to block a six-game suspension from the National Football League for allegedly committed domestic violence against former girlfriend Tiffany Thompson. Elliott was originally suspended for violating the league's personal conduct policy, which stemmed from a very tumultuous offseason experience.

Had they waited until next week to make their decision, Elliott would have been allowed to play on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons thanks to the administrative stay he had been granted while awaiting the next panel to hear his appeal.

After several court cases and appeals, a United States district judge ruled last week to deny Elliott's request to block the suspension.


So, Elliott will nearly certainly miss that contest and many experts expect he'll serve the six-game suspension in full after this ruling. As it stands now, Zeke would not be eligible to return to the field for the Cowboys until their December 24th matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. In that case, Elliott would miss the Cowboys' home game against the Eagles on November 19 and would be eligible to return for the season finale, a December 31 game at Philadelphia.

In his last four games, Elliott has rushed for 506 yards and five touchdowns for the Cowboys.

He played the first eight games on three different legal reprieves. Barring further legal intervention, Elliott would miss that game.
