- Running back set to miss six games over domestic violence allegations
- Ezekiel Elliott could appeal again over NFL ban
A federal appeals court cleared the way for the NFL to impose a six-game suspension on Dallas Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott over domestic violence allegations on Thursday, siding with the league in the latest high-profile fight over its ability to punish players for off-field behavior.
In a 2-1 decision, the fifth US circuit court of appeals panel in New Orleans granted the league’s emergency request to set aside an injunction and ordered a district court in Texas to dismiss Elliott’s case. The case may not be over yet and further appeals were possible.
