Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott withdraws appeal, will serve full 6-game ban
Nov 17, 2017, 01:14
Elliott's agents, Rocky Arceneaux and Frank Salzano, have released a statement saying Elliott has withdrawn the latest appeal of his six-game suspension, meaning he'll be out the next five games for the Dallas Cowboys.
The NFLPA field the lawsuit shortly after Elliott was suspended by the NFL for a violation of the league's personal conduct policy.
The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals threw out Elliott's initial lawsuit because it was filed before Henderson issued his appeal ruling.
"This decision is in no way an admission of any wrongdoing, and Mr. Elliott is pleased that the legal fight mounted by he and his team resulted in disclosing many hidden truths regarding this matter as well [as] publicly exposing the NFL's mismanagement of its disciplinary process", the statement says.
He'll serve the five remaining games of the suspension in weeks 11-15, and will be able to return on Christmas Eve against the Seattle Seahawks.
Elliott had appealed to the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, where a hearing had been scheduled for December 1 on the appeal of Judge Katherine Polk Failla's denial of an injunction that would have blocked the suspension pending completion of the legal process regarding the validity of the suspension.
The odds were long that Elliott would win, following the Second Circuit Court of Appeals failing to grant an injunction which would have allowed him to continue playing through the appeal process. Elliott was accused of domestic abuse, and while he never faced criminal charges, the National Football League had to conduct a year-long investigation before determining whether or not he should face discipline.
Roberts, who was the only person with the league to interview Elliott's former girlfriend, did not believe Elliott should be penalized by the league.
"I think he's got a good plan and I know he's going to be doing stuff", Jones said last Sunday.
With that being the case, many of you are probably wondering when Elliott will make that return to the Cowboys this season. The Cowboys running back had 783 yards on 191 carries and seven rushing touchdowns in the eight games he has played this season. They will have Alfred Morris, Rod Smith, and Darren McFadden as their running backs while Elliot serves the rest of his suspension.
