Judge Denies NFL's Expedited Hearing Request; Zeke Plays Washington

A judge has denied the NFL's request for an expedited hearing regarding Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott and the injunction surrounding his six-game suspension, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Elliott for six games on August 11 after the league's 13-month league investigation concluded he was in violation of the league's personal-conduct policy for the incident in the summer of 2016. The hearing will be on its original date, October 30. If the injunction is granted, Elliott will continue to be able to play while the National Football League would likely continue to appeal the decision.

The court date to decide whether or not the Southern District of NY will grant a preliminary injunction in the ongoing Ezekiel Elliott case has been set. He now has a temporary restraining order on his suspension.

Elliott's temporary restraining order allows him to play Sunday, but expires after 14 days.

U.S. District Judge Katherine Polk Failla rejected a request by the National Football League for an expedited hearing on a request for a preliminary injunction for Elliott.

Last year, during his rookie campaign, Elliott led the league with 1,631 yards on the ground, scoring 15 touchdowns as a rusher and averaging 5.1 yards per carry. Overall this season, Elliott has totaled 540 yards and four scores on the ground.

After Sunday's matchup in San Francisco, the Cowboys will travel to Washington to take on the Redskins on 10/29.
