NFL's request for expedited hearing rejected, Elliott to play vs. Washington

Posted October 24, 2017

The Dallas Cowboys will continue to have the benefit of the services of running back Ezekiel Elliott, for at least another week.

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.

Judge Katherine Failla sets next Zeke hearing on injunction for 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 30 in NYC, denying National Football League move. The NFL was hoping to get the hearing moved up to this Friday, Oct. 27.

The NFLPA was granted a preliminary injunction by a federal judge in Texas, only to have that injunction lifted by a three-judge panel of a federal appeals court in New Orleans.

Spencer's followers stopped their auto in front of a group of anti-racism protesters at a bus stop, police said in a statement. Just before 9 off-duty Alachua County Sheriff's deputy who had worked the Spencer event earlier saw the men's vehicle.

"The NFL can not show any good cause for its proposed dramatic departure from the Court's ordinary scheduling requirements", the NFL Players Association successfully argued on behalf of Elliott.

As the case has gone through the legal process, Elliott has been able to play in each and every game this season in spite of being suspended for six weeks by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. However, that judge said he would not lift the injunction. He now has a temporary restraining order on his suspension.
