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.
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.
