Cowboys' Elliott will play at least 2 more games

NFL's next move against Elliott puts Goodell on watch list

NFL's next move against Elliott puts Goodell on watch list

He was suspended by the league for violating its domestic violence policy after an ex-girlfriend claimed he abused her.

The fifth circuit court has not bowed to the NFL's request to have a hearing on their emergency stay request of the injunction now halting Ezekiel Elliott's suspension.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals agreed Friday to hold oral arguments between the NFL and NFL Players Association.

Friday's news of an October 2 hearing means Elliott will play in weeks 3 and 4.

Mazzant's decision to temporarily block the suspension was based on the appearance of "fundamental unfairness" in the NFL's handling of Elliott's case, particularly his appeal that was heard by Harold Henderson.

The long and short of this development is that Dallas will have Elliott Monday night against the Arizona Cardinals and the Sunday following that for a date against the Los Angeles Rams. Earlier in the week, Judge Mazzant denied the league's request to the district court under the same premise.

Because Elliott filed his lawsuit before National Football League arbitrator Harold Henderson announced his rule on Elliott's appeal, there is a question of whether the Texas court had proper jurisdiction. The NFL has the superficial argument while Elliott and the NFLPA have the more complex one, so the hearing is another small win for Zeke. Elliott would miss games if the stay was enacted, and if the courts decided he wasn't given a fair process, those games could not be replayed. "We're going to control what we can control until someone tells us otherwise".
