Latest On Ezekiel Elliott

The NFL has lost the latest battle in the legal system against Ezekiel Elliott, but the courtroom war is not yet over. The NFL’s emergency motion for a stay of the preliminary injunction has been denied by judge Amos L. Mazzant (Twitter link via sports attorney Daniel Wallach). The league is now taking its case to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in hopes that a stay will be granted and the suspension will be put into effect immediately. "<strong

If the NFL wins at the Fifth Circuit level, Elliott’s suspension will go into effect immediately, taking him out of action for games against the Cardinals, Rams, Packers, 49ers, Redskins, and Chiefs. He would not be able to return until Nov. 12 when the Cowboys travel to Atlanta to face the Falcons.

Elliott has never been arrested or charged with a crime, but his name has appeared in at least four investigations concerning assault, battery, domestic violence, and disorderly conduct in the last three years and change.

Elliott was stifled by the Broncos’ D on Sunday, rushing for just eight yards off of nine carries. He also took a great deal of criticism for not chasing down Broncos corner Chris Harris after he intercepted a pass in the third quarter.

    Don’t understand why the league is going after Elliot, but Joe Mixon seems to get a free pass!

    Mixon’s just joined the NFL and his legal issues were from a couple years ago. The NFL can’t penalize an employee for something that happened long before employment began. Elliot’s been named in at least one investigation for a incident that happened while he’s been employed with the league.

      Exactly this whole entire investigation is from something that happened before he was employed in the NFL. Everything else from the blouse pull down to the assault in the nightclub incident doesn’t help his cause but should be considered entirely separate. Meanwhile the NFL is using those incidents as the basis he was suspended, of which he would be subject to less games in a suspension rather then the domestic violence 6-game minimum….

        This is all a “who’s @#$% is bigger” contest between the NFL and the PA. None of this will end well for anyone.

    He was already drafted by Boys when the domestic violence happened……in the league. I’d defend Kap ( not happening ) before this quality turd !

      They are both scum bags but the Mixon assault is filmed. I’m sure Elliott did something but the alleged victim really doesn’t seem credible.
