The NFL Players Association argued recently in its appeal that Elliott will sustain irreparable harm without an injunction, saying that "courts have consistently concluded that professional athletes suffer irreparable harm when threatened with a potentially wrongful suspension".
The next step in the ongoing legal saga surrounding Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has been scheduled for Thursday when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit will hear oral arguments for an emergency injunction motion of Elliott's suspension.
"We anticipate him being here (Tuesday) and practicing through the week until there is some decision made", coach Jason Garrett said. Of course, we have learned to take nothing for granted in this situation. Zeke has done a really good job of that. He led the Cowboys in rushing with 93 yards on 27 carries and scored the go-ahead touchdown in the 28-17 win after getting another reprieve.
Elliott missed two days of practice last week after Failla's decision on Monday reinstated suspension that was initially announced August 11.
The news is somewhat surprising, as Elliott told David Helman of the Cowboys' official website on Friday that this is more than just about football.
"I don't want to break down the rep numbers per offensive set for you, but suffice it to say, the backup running backs get work throughout the week in a given week". So I came in Friday and practiced and spent all day Friday watching a lot of film.
