Running back Ezekiel Elliott remains eligible to play Sunday for the Dallas Cowboys under a ruling made Monday by a federal judge in NY. If the injunction is granted, Elliott will continue to be able to play while the National Football League would likely continue to appeal the decision. As the case has gone through the legal process, Elliott has been able to play in each and every game this season in spite of being suspended for six weeks by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. He was granted a second temporary restraining order against the league last week to prevent the start of a six-game suspension.
Judge Katherine Failla sets next Zeke hearing on injunction for 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 30 in NYC, denying National Football League move.
Elliott's temporary restraining order allows him to play Sunday, but expires after 14 days.
Ezekiel Elliott could have his six-game suspension enforced in the very near future, but before that happens, he'll get to play in at least one more game.
US District Court Judge Katherine Polk Failla in NY said Elliott's hearing would be held on October 30 as scheduled, meaning the Cowboys star will be free to face the Washington Redskins on Sunday. The NFL has not been permitted to enforce the suspension all season.
After Sunday's matchup in San Francisco, the Cowboys will travel to Washington to take on the Redskins on 10/29.
