Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott denied preliminary injunction, suspension is back on

Ian Rapoport: Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has lost his attempt at a preliminary injunction. He’s suspended again.

Amy Dash: The NFLPA has failed to demonstrate a substantial question warranting the extraordinary remedy of injunctive relief.

Jason La Canfora: If NFLPA can't win an appeal in next 24 hours, Zeke is gone for 6 games.

Adam Schefter: To summarize: Ezekiel Elliott is facing suspension in 24 hours, but this is not over yet. Is it ever?

Related players: Alfred Morris, Darren McFadden, Rod Smith

Fantasy Impact: 

The bottom line is that Elliott is suspended, for now. The NFLPA can appeal (again) but as it stands, he will miss the next six games, which would put his return in Week 15. The Cowboys will likely use a committee to replace Elliott. Morris is second on the team with 13 carries, while McFadden has been inactive all season. Look for Morris to get first crack on first and second downs, with McFadden filling the change-of-pace/third-down role.
