It would appear that Ezekiel Elliott is going to remain suspended for the next six games, as an injunction that was previously allowing the Dallas Cowboys running back to play has been lifted.
Elliott had previously been granted an injunction that blocked his six-game suspension, but judges from the 5th circuit ruled in the NFL’s favor last Thursday, citing a procedural issue with the way the NFLPA handled the case. Elliott’s camp responded by filing a petition for a rehearing, but the decision was upheld on Tuesday.

Without getting into too much legal jargon, the bottom line is that Elliott’s goose is basically cooked. There are still some legal avenues his attorneys and the NFLPA can explore, but the most likely outcome is that Elliott misses the next six games.
