(New York, NY) — Ezekiel Elliott’s on-again, off-again suspension is back on. A panel of federal judges in New York denied the Cowboys running back’s request for an emergency injunction yesterday, saying he didn’t meet the requisite standard. It means Elliott won’t play Sunday against Atlanta. The penalty is scheduled to last six games.
