Suspension for Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is upheld, but he'll play Week 1, maybe longer

Good reporting here from Albert Breer, Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport...

Breer: Harold Henderson has upheld Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's 6-game suspension, per source (@mortreport had it 1st). Off to court we go.

Breer: So now, Ezekiel Elliott awaits ruling from Texas court on his temporary restraining order. If granted, Cowboys likely to have him all year.

Pelissero: NFL took position Ezekiel Elliott CAN play Sunday. Judge rules by 5 pm Friday on restraining order.

Rapoport: To sum it up: Elliott plays Sunday. Could get a restraining order to stay in the field this season. Could not get it and sit Weeks 2-7.

Breer: Reports from in the courtroom indicated TRO hearing went well for Ezekiel Elliott. And again, he gets the TRO, he plays until case is settled.

Fantasy Impact: 

Signs have been pointing to Elliott winning his bid for a temporary restraining order (TRO), which would allow him to play all of 2017 as the case sorts itself out. He's a top five running back if he's able to suit up against the Giants.
