Ezekiel Elliott suspension reinstated after court ruling

Albert Breer of The MMQB also reported the league plans on enforcing the suspension immediately, once Dallas is off it's Week 6 bye.

The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans lifted an injunction Thursday that blocked a six-game suspension for Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, clearing the way for a six-game suspension. They next play October 22 at San Francisco.

According to the letter Elliott received informing him of the suspension, the National Football League believed he used "physical force" three times over five days in a Columbus, Ohio, apartment last July resulting in injuries to Thompson's face, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, wrists, hips and knees.

Last month, the National Football League requested an emergency stay of a judge's injunction that allowed Elliott to play indefinitely, saying the court didn't have subject matter jurisdiction to make the decision.

That appears to be the case with Thomas , who spoke about his Boston exit in a candid interview with SI's Lee Jenkins . Some players really don't want to be traded. "He's a great kid and I wish him the best".

The 22-year-old Elliott was suspended by Commissioner Roger Goodell in August after the league concluded following a yearlong investigation that he had several physical confrontations last summer with his girlfriend at the time.

The NFL previously prevailed at the appellate level in cases involving Adrian Peterson and Tom Brady in which the NFLPA challenged disciplinary measures and scored victories at the district court level. Mazzant ruled that Elliott did not receive a fair appeal hearing before Henderson, in large part because Elliott's accuser and Goodell did not testify.
