Judge denies National Football League attempts to stay Ezekiel Elliott injunction

Judge denies NFL attempts to stay Ezekiel Elliott injunction

Despite his six-game National Football League suspension, Elliott has been allowed to play so far this season because U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant handed down a preliminary injunction on September 9 that prevented the National Football League from suspending Elliott until his case made its way through the court system.

Sports attorney Daniel Wallach reported the news.

The NFLPA made its argument through a legal filing Saturday with the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, saying Elliott "stands to lose almost half a season in a career that is notoriously short and precarious, and competitive opportunities are irretrievable once lost".

"In its Emergency Motion in front of the Court, the National Football League is complaining that the Court essentially issued a premature order by failing to wait for the arbitrator to issue his ruling and therefore, lacked subject matter jurisdiction", Mazzant said in his ruling. The NFL anticipated the judge would stick with his original decision, hence the filing in the 5th Circuit. "Oddly, the National Football League is now seeking expedited relief from the Fifth Circuit without first waiting for the Court to rule on the identical issue".

Elliott appealed the suspension, but it was upheld by arbitrator Harold Henderson.

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett addressed the rumor that Ezekiel Elliott "quit" during a play in which Broncos CB Chris Harris Jr. intercepted the ball.

It will now be interesting to see if the NFL's request for an expedited hearing in the court of appeals will be granted.

As of now, it sure looks like Elliott will play out the remainder of the season.

The NFL players' union sued on Elliott's behalf and was granted a temporary injunction blocking the suspension.
