  • Appeals Court Rules Against Ezekiel Elliott, Bringing His Suspension One Step Closer

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott.

There's another twist in the legal battle involving the six-game suspension of Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, and this one favors the NFL.

Last month, the National Football League requested an emergency stay of a judge's injunction that allowed Elliott to play indefinitely, saying the court didn't have subject matter jurisdiction to make the decision.

Trump weighs in on Jemele Hill's ESPN suspension
Hill has been with ESPN since 2006. "If you feel strongly about [Jerry Jones'] statement, boycott his advertisers". She previously stirred controversy by calling President Trump a " white supremacist " on Twitter .

According to the AP, the court lifted an injunction Thursday that blocked a six-game suspension for the star, which cleared the way for the NFL's punishment. Authorities in Columbus, Ohio, did not charge Elliott with a crime. The NFL filed in NY and they thought this would help them win this case having it away from Elliott's home state of Texas.

The NFLPA took its challenge to federal court in Texas.

The good news for the Cowboys is that they have a bye this week, which will give Elliott and the NFLPA some extra time to appeal the Fifth Circuit's ruling.

Kenyan opposition leader Odinga withdraws from new presidential election
Over the weekend, NASA leaders maintained that they will not participate in the coming elections if their demands are not met. A majority found so many irregularities, they said the elections did not meet the threshold set out by the constitution.

The NFL countered that it followed procedures under the league's labor deal and that the union improperly filed a lawsuit before the appeals process was complete. The league's headquarters is in Manhattan, not Texas, and other cases, including the fight between the league and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, were heard in that court.

Our models project Elliott for 1,067.2 rushing yards, 262.1 receiving yards, and 12.2 total touchdowns the rest of the season; if he is allowed to play the remaining 11 games, of course.
