Ezekiel Elliott May Still Be Eligible To Play

Report: Ezekiel Elliott Eligible to Play Until Petition for Rehearing is Resolved

Photo Ezekiel Elliott of the Dallas Cowboys has yet to miss any games because of his six-game suspension, but he is now barred from participating in any team activities. But with Dallas now preparing for a Sunday game against the San Francisco 49ers, and Elliott currently barred from participating in any team activities, they now face a ticking clock before the suspension goes from theory to reality.

Elliott's legal team filed a request for a temporary restraining order Monday and will get a hearing Tuesday in the Southern District of NY, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the filing hadn't been made public.

In a 38-page filing Monday, the NFLPA cited a disciplinary process "that has denied the Union and Elliott of fundamental fairness" and mentioned the "forthcoming" motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction.

With the case in court, Elliott has played five games for the Cowboys this season.

Last week, the US 5th Circuit Court of Appeals vacated Elliott's injunction against the suspension, meaning the punishment is set to go into effect with Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers.

A simple fix, should the feature return, would be to offer the option to opt out of the calorie estimates. The calorie count shows up on the map if the driving directions you've requested cover a short distance.

"It remains the NFLPA's position that the mirror-image, first-filed action in the Eastern District of Texas is the appropriate case for resolving this dispute".

The Fifth Circuit could rule in the interim that the prior injunction issued by a federal court in Texas is, or isn't, in effect pending the exercise of Elliott's right to appeal the Fifth Circuit's ruling from last week.

Monday morning, the National Football League responded to that request, saying the NFLPA hadn't demonstrated "extraordinary circumstances" necessary for an en banc rehearing.

The case is shifting to NY because the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans ordered the dismissal of Elliott's lawsuit in Texas.
