5th circuit court rules against #Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott, vacating preliminary injunction & reinstating his 6-game suspension.

But, according to, this isn’t the end of the situation.

“[However,] the NFLPA is expected to re-file the case with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York and seek a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction in order to keep Elliott playing, according to Gabe Feldman, director of the Tulane Sports Law Program. The Cowboys have a bye this week and there’s a chance Elliott might not miss a single game if the NFLPA refiles the case and is granted a TRO or preliminary injunction.”

More to come on this developing situation.
