Jerry Jones Says Ezekiel Elliott Hasn't Been Treated in a Fair Way

Thursday's ruling was more about procedure than it was the merits of Elliott's case against the NFL. "It vacates the preliminary injunction and directs an order to the lower court to dismiss the case".

Jones wouldn't go into specifics regarding how the team will support Elliott in his quest to have his suspension overturned.

As a result, Elliott's suspension will begin effective immediately.

Thursday's ruling came down ahead of the Cowboys' bye week, giving him ample time to restart the legal fight.

Elliott appealed, but his suspension was upheld.

The Manhattan court will be charged with making the same decision already made by Mazzant - whether the league's disciplinary process was "fundamentally unfair" to Elliott.

Elliott's suspension could remain on hold if he seeks a rehearing, known as an en banc petition, Weinstein said.

"If he refiles in Texas, the National Football League still has their jurisdictional argument and they have already filed a suit in NY, so they beat him to that courthouse", Weinstein said. In its ruling, the 5th Circuit agreed with league attorneys who argued that Elliott prematurely sued the league September 1.

"I have been saying all along to be careful what he wishes for", Weinstein said.

In the meantime, Elliott has played in five games for the Cowboys.

The NFL had initially moved to suspend Zeke after a private investigation found he physically abused his girlfriend on multiple occasions.

The Cowboys now have former Oakland Raider Darren McFadden, former Washington Redskin Alfred Morris, and former Ohio State Buckeye and three-year pro Rod Smith sitting behind Elliott on the depth chart.

While Elliott was not arrested or charged by prosecutors, the National Football League cited statements from Elliott's former girlfriend and photos that showed injuries Elliott allegedly inflicted in July 2016 for the basis for his suspension.
