Ezekiel Elliott's injunction denied; six-game suspension reinstated

Ezekiel Elliott's injunction denied; six-game suspension reinstated

Thursday afternoon, Elliott's emergency motion was denied by the Second Circuit.

So, Elliott will nearly certainly miss that contest and many experts expect he'll serve the six-game suspension in full after this ruling.

But as long as the NFLPA and Elliott seek that expedited appeal, the winding legal drama will continue.

Elliott will now miss games against the Falcons, Eagles, Chargers, Redskins, Giants, and Raiders.

The six-game suspension stems from a domestic violence allegation by Elliott's former girlfriend in July of 2016.




The Elliott suspension has been weaving through the courts since he was ordered in August to serve the ban for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. The collective bargaining agreement between the National Football League and NFLPA affords commissioner Roger Goodell the power to make decisions on suspensions.

An NFL Players Association source told ESPN.com that Elliott will not play "while we argue".

Due to Thursday's verdict, Elliott's suspension will be reinstated by the league immediately, with an official transaction notice from the NFL expected soon. In it, the three-judge panel wrote that Elliott's pursuit of an injunction blocking the suspension didn't meet the requisite standard for consideration.

The difference this week is that Elliott, the NFL's second-leading rusher, was with his teammates.
