Judge Katherine Failla sets next Zeke hearing on injunction for 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 30 in NYC, denying NFL move. He can play Sun. at Wash.

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.
