Ezekiel Elliott’s injunction request denied; Suspension is back on

by Angela Davis|@ladyadavis |@jerseygirlsport He was suspended, then he got a temporary stay, and now his injunction request has been denied, so Dallas Cowboy's front man Ezekiel Elliott's suspension is back on!
from NFL.com The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday denied Ezekiel Elliott's and the NFL Players Association's request for an injunction pending appeal in Elliott's case. TheCowboys running back is set to begin serving his six-game suspension Sunday against theAtlanta Falcons, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported. The decision almost certainly keeps Elliott off the field for the next six games. Elliott currently is not eligible to play until Week 16 against theSeattle Seahawkson Dec. 24. The 2nd Circuit denied the injunction request after hearing oral arguments from both union and NFL lawyers during a hearing in New York on Thursday, which Elliott attended. The three-judge panel's decision allows the league to enforce the suspension until a ruling is made in the NFLPA's case, according NFL Network legal analyst Gabe Feldman. The court says the appeal will be heard on an expedited appeal.
Jersey Girl Sports fam this is the worst news for the Cowboys who are playing in Atlanta on Sunday. Not having Zeke until week 16 is going to severely hurt their chances at getting to the playoffs. I can imagine this only fuels Jerry Jones' anger. Perhaps he should take a knee and pray about it. What do you think?
