Ezekiel Elliott suspended again for Cowboys after losing latest appeal

On Thursday, the 2nd Circuit denied Elliott's motion, reinstating the Dallas Cowboys running back's six-game suspension that has been playing out in the legal system throughout the season. Instead, he'll miss Sunday's game.

Elliott and the NFLPA next can appeal to the full appeals court and then to the U.S. Supreme Court, if they choose. If his six-game suspension is upheld, beginning with Sunday's game against the Falcons, then he would be eligible to return the field on December 24 when the Cowboys, now 5-3, face the Seahawks at home.

Elliott will now miss games against the Falcons, Eagles, Chargers, Redskins, Giants, and Raiders. Elliott was suspended by the National Football League after accusations of domestic violence by his ex-girlfriend.

Elliott and the NFLPA challenged the decision-making process in court, arguing the NFL's investigation was fundamentally unfair to Elliott. The collective bargaining agreement between the National Football League and NFLPA affords commissioner Roger Goodell the power to make decisions on suspensions.

The difference this week is that Elliott, the NFL's second-leading rusher, was with his teammates. Now Elliott seeks a longer-lasting injunction from a three-judge panel that will hear his case Thursday in NY.
