Despite a lot of optimism from legal analysts, Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott's request for an emergency injunction against the NFL was denied today by a three-judge panel in the U.S. Second Circuit Court. The stay last week was also terminated, meaning that his six-game suspension is back in effect.
Elliott now set to miss Falcons, Eagles, Chargers, Redskins, Giants and Raiders. Would be back Christmas Eve. vs Seahawks.

The court did award Elliott an expedited appeal, but in the world of appellate court this isn't as soon as Cowboys fans would like.
Ezekiel Elliott's next appeal before the 2nd circuit is set for Dec. 1st. Source says it'll be before a "different panel so new shot."

So, at the least, Zeke will miss the next four games. He has a chance to return in Week 14 for the Cowboys rematch with the New York Giants.
