Ezekiel Elliott's Case on Thursday's Docket at 2nd US Court of Appeals

"I had no idea when I came in on Friday that I was going to have the chance to come in".
While the fate of Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension is being decided in the courts, the Dallas Cowboys running back's lawyers attempted to settle his case with the National Football League, according to a report from ESPN. "So every day is worth fighting".
The NFL Players Association argued recently in its appeal that Elliott will sustain irreparable harm without an injunction, saying that "courts have consistently concluded that professional athletes suffer irreparable harm when threatened with a potentially wrongful suspension".
Elliott, who has played in all seven of the Cowboys' games this season, would've had to sit out Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs had he not secured his latest favorable ruling. Elliott and the NFLPA want judges to grant them a preliminary injunction. Elliott, who was not arrested or charged in the case, maintains his innocence after being accused of assaulting his former girlfriend in Columbus, Ohio.
Elliott was not allowed to be at the team's training facility in Frisco, Tex., Wednesday or Thursday after U.S. District Court Judge Katherine Polk Failla denied Elliott an injunction after a status hearing in NY on Monday.
Elliott missed two days of practice last week after Failla's decision on Monday reinstated suspension that was initially announced August 11.
The NFL is unlikely to agree upon a settlement with Elliott.
