Ezekiel Elliott suspended again for Cowboys after losing latest appeal

A federal appeals court denied a request by the NFL Players Association to put Ezekiel Elliott's suspension back on hold, a development that potentially clears the way for the NFL to enforce its six-game ban of the standout running back for the Dallas Cowboys. However, because the appeal process has continued to take turn after turn, Elliott has been able to play in each of the Cowboys eight regular-season games thus far into the 2017-18 regular season.

According to Pro Football Talk, an appellate court will hear his case on an expedited basis, and Elliott will remain suspended until then. Those contests being against the 4-4 Falcons, the 8-1 Philadelphia Eagles, the 3-5 Los Angeles Chargers, the 4-4 Washington Redskins, the 1-7 New York Giants and the 4-5 Oakland Raiders.

Elliott has been embroiled in a legal saga with the National Football League after being issued a six-game suspension following a 13-month investigation into a domestic violence allegation in 2016.

The NFLPA has argued a suspension would irreparably harm Elliott's career.

Elliott is second in the NFL with 783 rushing yards and tied for the league lead with seven rushing scores.
