Ezekiel Elliott withdraws appeal, will serve full 6-game ban

5:59 PM ET

FRISCO, Texas — The next time Ezekiel Elliott carries the football for the Dallas Cowboys will be Dec. 24 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Elliott has withdrawn his appeal to the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. A hearing had been scheduled for Dec. 1 for a potential preliminary injunction, a last-ditch effort to fend off a full six-game suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy.

In a statement Wednesday, Elliott’s agents, Rocky Arceneaux and Frank Salzano, said: “In consultation with the NFLPA and his lawyers, and after careful deliberation and review of the recent Second Circuit decisions, Mr. Elliott has decided to forgo any further appeals and will serve the remaining suspension. This decision arises from a practical assessment of the current legal landscape. Mr. Elliott’s desire for closure in this matter is in his best interests, as well as the best interests of his teammates, family and friends.
