6-Game Suspension Back On
… For Now

Bad news for the Dallas Cowboys … a federal appeals court has ruled Ezekiel Elliott‘s 6-game suspension is back on.
A federal appeals court made a ruling today … essentially throwing out a lower court’s ruling that allowed Zeke to play.
So, what does it all mean?
The Cowboys happen to be on a bye week — which gives Zeke’s team some time to counterpunch and fight the ruling.
The NFL had initially moved to suspend Zeke after a private investigation found he physically abused his girlfriend on multiple occasions.
Important to note, Elliott was never prosecuted for the incidents — and he maintains his innocence.
But due to the collective bargaining agreement, the NFL believes it doesn’t need a conviction to punish a player.
