11/15/17 - RB Ezekiel Elliott has withdrawn his appeal of his six-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy, his agents announced in a statement on Wednesday. Elliott sat out the first game of his suspension in Sunday's 27-7 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. The 22-year-old will be eligible to return to the Cowboys (5-4) on Christmas Eve against the Seattle Seahawks.
11/15/17 - RB Ezekiel Elliott continues to maintain his innocence against domestic violence allegations made by former girlfriend Tiffany Thompson.
But he has finally accepted the reality of having no chance of winning a legal fight in federal court against the NFL in hopes of getting a six-game suspension overturned and hopefully clearing his name.
In a statement through his lawyers, Rocky Arceneaux and Frank Salzano, Elliott announced Wednesday that he was foregoing any further appeals and will serve the remaining suspension.
11/13/17 - RB Ezekiel Elliott plans to spend time out of the country to clear his head and train during his six-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy, per a source.
That confirmed an earlier report by the NFL Network. Elliott hopes to take a page out the Tom Brady playbook. The New England Patriots quarterback spent a week in Italy during his four-game suspension in 2016. Elliott, however, has yet to depart for his out of the country trip. He was spotted grocery shopping in Frisco before Sunday's game between the Cowboys and the Atlanta Falcons.
11/09/17 - RB Ezekiel Elliott had his latest legal motion denied by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York on Thursday, meaning his six-game NFL suspension is back in effect. Elliott is slated to begin his suspension when the Cowboys visit the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. The NFL Players Association is expected to request an expedited appeal of Thursday's decision but the suspension began immediately upon the court's ruling. If the suspension sticks, Elliott will next be eligible to play against the Seattle Seahawks on Dec. 24.
11/03/17 - RB Ezekiel Elliott of the Cowboys is granted a stay and will be eligible to play in Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York granted the request for an administrative stay to the NFL Players Association on behalf of Elliott. With his six-game suspension on hold once again, the 22-year-old Elliott arrived at the Cowboys' practice facility Friday morning. He was not with the team on Wednesday and Thursday, per league rules. He is cleared only through Sunday's game against Chiefs and he will be suspended again heading into the Nov. 12 game against the Atlanta Falcons if another ruling is not in his favor. A panel of federal judges will convene next week to hear Elliott's request for an injunction that overturns Judge Katherine Polk Failla's ruling from Monday.
10/29/17 - RB Ezekiel Elliott ran for a season-high 150 yards and two touchdowns Sunday. After fumbling on his first carry, Elliott ran it 32 more times in bad conditions, scored on runs of 1 and 13 yards and had a 27-yard score negated by a holding penalty. He notched his third career performance of at least 150 yards in what could be his last game for some time. Elliott, who has rushed for 413 yards in his last three games, has a court date on Monday that will likely determine whether he begins serving a six-game NFL suspension immediately. "Really wasn't thinking about it today. Just worried about going out there and being myself and performing at my highest level today," Elliott said. "But I think we're confident. We're confident in our argument. We're confident that I'll be on the field." Elliott broke a tie with Don Perkins for sole possession of fifth place all-time in 100-yard rushing games in team history with 11.
10/23/17 - RB Ezekiel Elliott, coming off his best game of the season in the 40-10 victory over the San Francisco 49ers, will be on the field for Sunday's game at the Washington Redskins.
Judge Katherine Failla of the Second District of New York has rejected the NFL's request for an expedited hearing for this week before the Redskins game. She has notified the NFL and Elliott's lawyers from the NFL Players Association that the preliminary injunction hearing is set for Oct. 30 at 5 p.m. Elliott, who is fighting a six-game NFL suspension for allegedly assaulting former girlfriend Tiffany Thompson, is playing now thanks to a 14-day temporary restraining order granted last Tuesday by Judge Paul Crotty, who was sitting in for a vacationing Failla.
10/22/17 - RB Ezekiel Elliott ran for 147 yards and two touchdowns and caught a 72-yard touchdown pass, leading the Cowboys to a 40-10 victory on Sunday at San Francisco. Elliott, who had season highs for rushing yards and touchdowns while carrying the ball 26 times, didn't know whether he would be allowed to play until Tuesday. That was when a U.S. District judge in New York granted his motion for a temporary restraining order blocking his six-game suspension for violating the NFL's personal-conduct policy for alleged domestic assault against his ex-girlfriend. "I put that aside when I get with these guys," Elliott said.
10/18/17 - RB Ezekiel Elliott said Wednesday he appreciates the opportunity to return to the field after a New York federal judge granted him a temporary restraining order on his six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations. The 22-year-old Elliott was not allowed to be at The Star, the Cowboys' team headquarters, until a U.S. district judge in New York made his ruling Tuesday night. On Wednesday, the Elliott went through practice with his teammates in preparation for Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers in Santa Clara, Calif.
10/12/17 - RB Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension is back in force after a federal appeals court lifted the injunction that was halting the sanction.
The NFL issued the suspension over an alleged domestic-violence incident.
The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans voted 2-1 in favor of the NFL, which requested an emergency hearing after a district court in Texas blocked the suspension last month. The appeals court ordered the Texas court to dismiss Elliott's case. Elliott's representatives are expected to appeal Thursday's developments.
