BREAKING: Ezekiel Elliott Granted Stay; Will Play Sunday

In an ongoing story giving mental and emotional whiplash, won his request for an immediate stay of his six-game pending further legal action. The U.S. Second Circuit Court, which will hear his appeal at a later date, awarded this stay and will enable Elliott to play this Sunday against the .

 

The court's decision, while not explained, likely is based on the idea of “irreparable harm” that Zeke would suffer if he has to miss games before his appeal is heard. While Judge Failla dismissed the validity of this argument in the last hearing, several other judges involved have agreed with Elliott's team.

We'll be right back in this mud hole next week trying to figure out his availability for the Falcons game, but for now we can only celebrate Zeke being on the field this Sunday to welcome the Chiefs.

If you didn’t expand the ruling document, it starts: Roger Goodell is a moron…

;^)

If he loses these attempts to make his bogus ruling stick, and Elliott has the suspension eventually nullified, it may hasten his firing.

Already with no solutions to the TV ratings downturn, then with John Schnatter (stupidly) saying Papa John’s sales are down because of the kneeling protest, this is now mounting pressures on the inept Goodell.

Good. Zeke for 200 on Sunday…
