  • Ezekiel Elliott eligible to play for time being

The NFLPA filed the petition on Friday asking for a rehearing in the case of the Cowboys running back, whose six-game suspension for a domestic violence incident has become another drawn out, high-profile legal battle between the NFL and a star player.

The NFL announced that the suspension was effective immediately, though further appeals were possible and the Cowboys are not playing this weekend.

Second, the lawsuit filed by Elliott in Texas is, we're told, "not over".

Should Elliott have to serve his six-game suspension, Alfred Morris would be the most likely option to shoulder the load in his absence.

Consumer Prices Accelerated in September
These so-called core retail sales correspond most closely with the consumer spending component of gross domestic product. Prices for all items less food and energy, the "core CPI", grew 0.1% in September, following a 0.2% August increases.


The Cowboys don't play again until Sunday, Oct. 22, at San Francisco. Brady went on to accept his suspension, which saw him sit out the first four games of the 2016 National Football League season.

Elliott's suspension formally restarted Thursday after the 5th Circuit's ruling and is now set to end on Friday, Nov. 24.

"This is a desperate Hail Mary to keep this case in Texas, if it happens it's the play of the season for Ezekiel Elliott's lawyers", said CBS Sports Radio Legal Analyst Amy Dash.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell issued Elliott's suspension in August, following a year-long investigation that concluded the running back physically assaulted ex-girlfriend Tiffany Thompson on three occasions in July 2016. The NFL filed in that federal court after Elliott's appeal through the league was denied by arbitrator Harold Henderson last month. Prosecutors in Columbus, Ohio, decided not to pursue the case, citing conflicting evidence. "As there was no final decision, Elliott had not yet exhausted the contracted-for remedies". "That decision had not yet been issued".
