Ezekiel Elliott suspension back on effective immediately with 2nd Circuit’s latest ruling
Ezekiel Elliott was allowed to play against the Chiefs in Week 9 thanks to a temporary stay issued by the Second Circuit Court. On Thursday, the court denied Elliott an injunction, according to sports and gaming attorney Daniel Wallach. The decision will put Elliott’s six-game suspension back in place effective immediately.
The NFLPA is running out of options. It can appeal to the Second Circuit for an en banc hearing with all of the circuit court’s judges. It can also take the case to the Supreme Court. Neither approach is likely to succeed. Elliott’s suspension appears to be on for good this time.
The court denied Elliott’s motion on the basis that he did not “meet the requisite standard” for an emergency injunction. The order, which becomes acquired with the aid of NFL community’s Tom Pelissero, revokes the stay issued by the courtroom last week. It also orders an expedited appeal process. The appeal will be argued by both sides in a hearing on Dec. 1, according to Wallach.
