Just when the Dallas Cowboys thought they were in the clear about this Ezekiel Elliott suspension, things have taken a 180 again for the team.
A federal appeals court has given the NFL what they want and lifted the injunction that prevented the league from delivering a 6-game suspension for Elliott over domestic violence allegations. The panel of judges sided with the NFL after a 2-1 vote, backing the league’s argument for why the suspension should be reinstated.
Of course the NFL Player’s Union and Ezekiel’s attorneys will appeal the decision, but it remains to be seen when he will actually be suspended and if he will serve that punishment this season.
The NFL is fighting hard, though. We’ll see how this continues playing out.
