Ezekiel Elliott wins injunction on 6-game suspension, will play Sunday

The NFL world was waiting on Tuesday to see whether or not a federal judge in ny would grant Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott a temporary restraining order which would keep him on the field for the time being. Then the judge on the case will return from vacation, and on October 30, she will hear the case.

Elliott's legal team and National Football League lawyers were set for a hearing Tuesday afternoon in the Southern District of NY, about two hours before what Elliott's attorneys believed was a deadline for active rosters to be set for the Cowboys' game Sunday at San Francisco.

Crotty granted the request for a temporary restraining order pending a hearing before the presiding judge, Katherine Polk Fialla.

It's been a wild ride through all of this, as Elliott was supposed to miss the first six games of the season due to a suspension stemming from an alleged domestic violence incident from last spring.

The suspension kicked back into effect Thursday when a federal appeals court lifted an injunction blocking the suspension, according to ESPN.

Currently, Elliott is barred from participating in Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Violations of that policy mandate a six-game suspension.

ESPN cited a Monday court filing from the organization in which the group said the suspension would cause "irreparable harm" to Elliott's career.

Judge Paul Crotty in the Southern District of NY granted Elliott a temporary restraining order that will allow him to keep playing while a legal fight over his six-game suspension continues.
