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