Ezekiel Elliott Still Eligible To Play Despite Court Ruling

NFLPA to request en banc rehearing of Elliott's case

The NFLPA filed the petition on Friday asking for a rehearing in the case of the Cowboys running back, whose six-game suspension for a domestic violence incident has become another drawn out, high-profile legal battle between the NFL and a star player. With the team on bye, this doesn't change anything immediately, but it seems like a suspension could be further delayed by continued appeal.

"We are now exploring all of our legal options and will make a decision as to what is the best course of action in the next few days", Elliott attorney Frank Salzano said. Elliott played the first five games as Dallas went 2-3 in a disappointing start.

The federal judge in Texas who issued the injunction has said that he will not lift it despite the 5th Circuit Court's ruling, according to ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio, meaning that Elliott is still eligible to play.

Tim Hortons says the drink starts at $2.79 and will be offered at two Tim Hortons locations in Buffalo. The drinks will be served at two Buffalo, New York locations from now until October 20.

The most likely destination for further legal challenges from players' union attorneys representing Elliott is with the Southern District of NY.

In a 2-1 decision on Thursday, the court ruled the initial injunction filed by the NFLPA was premature because at the time it was filed, Elliott's appeal to the National Football League had not been decided. As of now, Elliott is set to be suspended through Week 12. The NFLPA has since filed a motion to recall the order and allow it the opportunity to seek an appeal in Texas.

Should the court either not make a decision or reject the petition, Elliott's suspension will end on November 24, the day after Dallas hosts the Los Angeles Chargers on Thanksgiving.
