Ruling allows Ezekiel Elliott to play Sunday vs. Chiefs


A federal appeals court granted the NFL Players Association a brief administrative stay in the Ezekiel Elliott case on Friday, reinstating the Dallas Cowboys running back’s eligibility for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs.

The stay request approved by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals only remains in place through Sunday, meaning Elliott will be suspended again heading into Week 10. However, there’s a chance the 2nd Circuit could grant the union request for an emergency injunction next week. If it does so, Elliott would have his playing eligibility restored until a decision is made on the NFLPA’s appeal.

The court has yet to schedule a hearing date for the NFLPA’s injunction request, but the motion has been referred to the next available three-judge panel. Friday’s decision, which only guarantees he will play Sunday, was not based on the merits of the case. However, the court does have the ability to extend the administrative stay, according to NFL Network legal analyst Gabe Feldman.
