Elliott will be coming of monster game yesterday in San Francisco, with over 200 combined yards and three touchdowns. Dallas will need him next week in a tough division rivalry game. Washington will be either 4-2 or 3-3 after their game tonight against Philadelphia.
The October 30th hearing now puts Dallas' Week 8 game against Kansas City, and the five that come after it, in the crosshairs. The saga continues.
