Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott emergency motion denied

Daniel Wallach - [Full Article]

Wallach, a gaming and sports attorney, said Elliott's emergency motion has been denied, which means his six-game suspension is back on.

Michael McCann added: Ezekiel Elliott's suspension is back on--for now. U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit sides with NFL & denies Elliott an injunction pending appeal. But Elliott's appeal will be heard on an expedited basis, so he might have another ruling before the six-game suspension games ends.

Amy Dash of CBS Sports also tweeted that an appellate court will hear the case "on an expedited basis." As of now, Elliott would begin his suspension this week and would be ineligible to play in Dallas' Week 10 contest versus the Atlanta Falcons. If he serves all six weeks of the suspension, he's eligible to return in Week 16.

Until we hear otherwise, Alfred Morris, Rod Smith and Darren McFadden look to split the workload in a great matchup for RBs against the Falcons.

UPDATE: We now have a date for the expedited appeal: December 1.
