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? 

For now, the NFL’s initial domestic violence punishment stands — and the league has been cleared to enforce the 6-game suspension

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.
