No ruling made in Ezekiel Elliott suspension hearing

Oral arguments for Ezekiel Elliott's hearing in his legal case against the NFL regarding his six-game suspension took place Monday at the 5th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in New Orleans.

Elliott himself did not attend the hearing, but NFLPA lawyer Jeffrey Kessler made arguments on his behalf against the NFL's attorney, Pratik Shah, in front of a three-judge panel. The NFL was seeking an emergency stay of a lower court ruling that allows Elliott to play while the appeal of his six-game suspension is adjudicated in the courts.

The hearing ended without a ruling, and it's not clear just yet when a ruling will come.

Judge Edward C. Prado did say it would come as soon as possible, according to Kate Hairopolous of the Dallas Morning News, the story went on to say. If there is no ruling by Tuesday, there was no decision on whether or not Elliott could play in Week 5, which is similar to the Week 1 situation where Elliott was allowed to play.
