Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension is back on after a hearing in NY on Thursday saw the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals deny his request for an emergency injunction.

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. Instead, he'll miss Sunday's game. But it now appears Zeke will finally begin that suspension starting this weekend and he'll be forced to miss the Cowboys upcoming matchup with the Atlanta Falcons at home. A temporary stay was issued on November 3 as the NFLPA prepared this case, which allowed Elliott to play in Dallas' Week 9 victory over the Chiefs. 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. He's eligible to return in Week 16 versus the Seattle Seahawks.




So, Elliott will nearly certainly miss that contest and many experts expect he'll serve the six-game suspension in full after this ruling. Over the course of his eight regular-season appearances thus far into the 2017-18 campaign, the second-year rusher has carried the football 191 times for 783 yards and seven touchdowns via the ground game. He's also had three receptions for 96 yards and another score.

Elliott can still appeal this decision, and the decision issued on Thursday says the appeal would be heard on an expedited basis. But the Cowboys as a whole will have to lift the level of their play if they want to catch the soaring Eagles, who now have a three game lead on Dallas in the NFC East.
