Ezekiel Elliott: Federal court ruling clears way for NFL to suspend Cowboys RB

On Thursday afternoon, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans ruled in favor of the NFL in their case against Dallas Cowboys All-Pro running back Ezekiel Elliott.

The ruling clears the way for the NFL to enforce the six-game domestic violence suspension they handed Elliott this offseason.

According to appellate lawyer Raffi Melkonian, the NFLPA’s lawsuit on Elliott’s behalf came prematurely.

Thursday’s ruling was a major victory for the NFL, but this battle is likely far from over.
