Ezekiel Elliott and National Football League both denying any knowledge of settlement talks

Ezekiel Elliott and National Football League both denying any knowledge of settlement talks”

Ezekiel Elliott has been granted another temporary restraining order by the Southern District of NY, and will be allowed to play Week 7.

The NFL originally imposed the six-game suspension on Elliott as the result of an alleged domestic violence incident. The NFL Players Association expressed opposition to an expedited hearing. That changed when Judge Paul Crotty issued just a temporary restraining order earlier this week, adding even more uncertainty to an already uncertain situation. The league has been ordered to appear before Failla by October 30 to make their argument as to why the suspension shouldn't be blocked at this time.

On Monday, the running back and NFLPA filed a motion for a preliminary injunction.

The Cowboys are back in action on Sunday to take on the 49ers, who have yet to win a game this season.

However, Tuesday's ruling allows Elliott to compete this weekend, unless there is another court ruling between now and Sunday. There were no charges pressed in the original case due to the district attorney's office finding there were conflicting stories. As a result, the National Football League reinstated Elliott's six-game suspension, and it appeared at that time Elliott would be sitting out the next six games.

As of right now, Elliott has played in all five of the Dallas Cowboys' games so far for the season.

Elliott has 105 carries for 393 yards and two touchdowns this season. Elliott led the league in rushing as a running back on a Cowboys' team that ended up grabbing the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC.

The Cowboys running back was awarded yet another injunction by the Southern District of NY and will be allowed to play in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers while the battle continues to play out in court.

The NFL suspended Elliott after a year-long investigation concluded that he abused then-girlfriend Tiffany Thompson in July 2016.
