Nov. 15, 2017 12:52 PM PT1:52 PM MT2:52 PM CT3:52 PM ET20:52 GMT4:52 1:52 PM MST3:52 PM EST2:52 PM CT0:52 UAE (+1)15:52 ETNaN:� - Elliott has dropped his latest attempt to appeal his six-game suspension.
Analysis: This looks like finally the end of this saga and Elliott will serve his suspension in full after all.
Nov. 6, 2017 9:07 AM PT10:07 AM MT11:07 AM CT12:07 PM ET17:07 GMT1:07 10:07 AM MST12:07 PM EST11:07 AM CT21:07 UAE12:07 ETNaN:� - A federal appeals court in New York City has denied Elliott's bid to keep a six-game suspension over alleged domestic violence on hold.
Analysis: Elliott was in court and the denial of the injunction makes him ineligible in Sunday's game at Atlanta. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that Elliott didn't meet the standards to continue blocking the suspension but ordered a hearing as soon as it could be scheduled. He played the first eight games on three different legal reprieves. It wasn't immediately clear how soon the court would rule on Elliott's claim that he was treated unfairly
Nov. 5, 2017 5:00 PM PT6:00 PM MT7:00 PM CT8:00 PM ET1:00 GMT9:00 6:00 PM MST8:00 PM EST7:00 PM CT5:00 UAE (+1)20:00 ETNaN:� - Ezekiel Elliott ran for 93 yards and one touchdown on 27 carries Sunday in the Dallas Cowboys' 28-17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.
Analysis: Elliott, who fell just short of a fourth straight 100-yard rushing performance - ran for the go-ahead touchdown - a 2-yard plunge - after another reprieve from his six-game suspension. The Cowboys are in Atlanta next week, and the Falcons are allowing an average of 4.24 yards per carry - 24th in the league.
Nov. 3, 2017 8:41 AM PT9:41 AM MT10:41 AM CT11:41 AM ET15:41 GMT23:41 8:41 AM MST10:41 AM EST9:41 AM CT19:41 UAE11:41 ETNaN:� - In a stunning turn of events, Elliott can play in Sunday's home game against Kansas City while a federal appeals court considers a challenge to his six-game suspension.
Analysis: The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York City issued a one-page order Friday temporarily blocking a lower-court ruling that cleared the way this week for Elliott to begin serving the disciplinary penalty.
Oct. 30, 2017 6:47 PM PT7:47 PM MT8:47 PM CT9:47 PM ET1:47 GMT9:47 6:47 PM MST8:47 PM EST7:47 PM CT5:47 UAE (+1)21:47 ETNaN:� - A federal judge has cleared the way for the NFL to enforce Elliott's six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations.
Analysis: U.S. District Judge Katherine Polk Failla on Monday denied the request for a preliminary injunction from players' union attorneys working for Elliott. It's the second time a federal ruling has overturned a reprieve that kept Elliott on the field, and likely will lead to another effort by for Elliott's legal team to pursue other remedies.
Oct. 29, 2017 4:09 PM PT5:09 PM MT6:09 PM CT7:09 PM ET23:09 GMT7:09 4:09 PM MST6:09 PM EST5:09 PM CT3:09 UAE (+1)19:09 ETNaN:� - Ezekiel Elliott ran for 150 yards and two touchdowns on 33 carries Sunday in the Dallas Cowboys' 33-19 win over the Washington Redskins. He added one reception for four yards and fumbled once.
Analysis: Elliott went over 100 yards for the third straight game with his best output of the season. Over his last three games, Elliott has 413 yards on 88 carries for a 4.7 average with four touchdowns. It remains to be seen if Elliott will be available next week against Kansas City. He has a hearing Monday when a judge must decide if Elliott can be granted another temporary injunction on his six-game suspension.
Oct. 23, 2017 7:54 AM PT8:54 AM MT9:54 AM CT10:54 AM ET14:54 GMT22:54 7:54 AM MST9:54 AM EST9:54 AM CT18:54 UAE10:54 ETNaN:� - Elliott will play at least one more game before another ruling from a federal judge on his six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations.
Analysis: U.S. District Judge Katherine Polk Failla in an order posted Monday turned down the NFL's request for an expedited hearing on a preliminary injunction. She set one for Oct. 30, a day after the Cowboys visit Washington.
Oct. 22, 2017 3:54 PM PT4:54 PM MT5:54 PM CT6:54 PM ET22:54 GMT6:54 3:54 PM MST5:54 PM EST5:54 PM CT2:54 UAE (+1)18:54 ETNaN:� - Ezekiel Elliott ran for 147 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries Sunday in the Dallas Cowboys' 40-10 win over the San Francisco 49ers. He added one reception for 72 yards and one touchdown.
Analysis: Elliott set a career high with 219 scrimmage yards, tied a career best with three TDs and established a season high for rushing yards. He didn't know whether he would be allowed to play until Tuesday. That was when a U.S. District judge in New York granted his motion for a temporary restraining order blocking his six-game suspension for violating the NFL's personal-conduct policy for alleged domestic assault against his ex-girlfriend.
Oct. 17, 2017 3:58 PM PT4:58 PM MT5:58 PM CT6:58 PM ET22:58 GMT6:58 3:58 PM MST5:58 PM EST5:58 PM CT2:58 UAE (+1)18:58 ETNaN:� - Elliott has been granted another legal reprieve in the running back's fight to avoid a six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations. A federal judge granted a temporary restraining order blocking the league's suspension Tuesday night, clearing Elliott to play Sunday at San Francisco.
Analysis: This is certainly great news for Elliott and the Cowboys. Eliott is coming off his best game of the season, carrying 29 times for 116 yards in a loss to Green Bay on Oct. 8.
Oct. 12, 2017 1:53 PM PT2:53 PM MT3:53 PM CT4:53 PM ET20:53 GMT4:53 1:53 PM MST3:53 PM EST3:53 PM CT0:53 UAE (+1)16:53 ETNaN:� - Elliott suffered a blow on Thursday when a federal appeals court lifted the injunction that prevented him from serving a six-game suspension over an alleged domestic violence incident. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans voted 2-1 in favor of the NFL, which requested an emergency hearing after a district court in Texas blocked the suspension last month. The appeals court ordered the Texas court to dismiss Elliott's case.
Analysis: Elliott's representatives are expected to appeal Thursday's developments. The Cowboys have a bye this week. Elliott has rushed for 393 yards and two touchdowns in five games this season. He is averaging just 3.7 yards per carry, well below the 5.1-yard mark of last season when he led the NFL with 1,631 rushing yards as a rookie.
Oct. 8, 2017 4:46 PM PT5:46 PM MT6:46 PM CT7:46 PM ET23:46 GMT7:46 4:46 PM MST6:46 PM EST6:46 PM CT3:46 UAE (+1)19:46 ETNaN:� - Ezekiel Elliott ran for 116 yards on 29 carries Sunday in the Dallas Cowboys' 35-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers. He added one reception for 16 yards.
Analysis: Elliott rushed for more than 100 yards in both of the team's games against Green Bay last season. He ended a three-game drought without 100 yards, matching the longest from his rookie season.
Oct. 5, 2017 8:34 AM PT9:34 AM MT10:34 AM CT11:34 AM ET15:34 GMT23:34 8:34 AM MST10:34 AM EST10:34 AM CT19:34 UAE11:34 ETNaN:� - Elliott (chest) was added to the injury report Wednesday, but coach Jason Garrett is not concerned about his playing status for Week 5.
Analysis: Apparently Elliott suffered bruised ribs last week against the Rams, but he's been able to practice in full.
Oct. 1, 2017 2:30 PM PT3:30 PM MT4:30 PM CT5:30 PM ET21:30 GMT5:30 2:30 PM MST4:30 PM EST4:30 PM CT1:30 UAE (+1)17:30 ETNaN:� - Ezekiel Elliott ran for 85 yards and one touchdown on 21 carries Sunday in the Dallas Cowboys' 35-30 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. He added four receptions for 54 yards and one touchdown.
Analysis: Elliott had a huge offensive performance the day before a federal appeals court hearing related to the star Dallas running back's blocked six-game suspension over a domestic incident in Ohio.
Sep. 26, 2017 9:09 PM PT10:09 PM MT11:09 PM CT12:09 AM ET4:09 GMT12:09 9:09 PM MST11:09 PM EST11:09 PM CT8:09 UAE0:09 ETNaN:� - Ezekiel Elliott ran for 80 yards and one touchdown on 22 carries Monday in the Dallas Cowboys' 28-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals. He added three receptions for 14 yards.
Analysis: Bottled up for much of the first half, Elliott avoided a second straight fantasy clunker by recording several tough runs after the break and a late TD that sealed Dallas' win. Though the Cowboys' offensive linchpin has averaged only 2.8 yards per carry over the past two weeks, those outings did come against two of the league's better run defenses in the Broncos and Cardinals.
Sep. 22, 2017 2:18 PM PT3:18 PM MT4:18 PM CT5:18 PM ET21:18 GMT5:18 2:18 PM MST4:18 PM EST4:18 PM CT1:18 UAE (+1)17:18 ETNaN:� - The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hold a hearing on Oct. 2 to hear arguments on the NFL emergency motion in Elliott's case. Elliott received a preliminary injunction on Sept. 18 that allowed him to continue to play for the Dallas Cowboys despite the NFL handing him a six-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy. The NFL is seeking to have Elliott serve his suspension immediately.
Analysis: The date of the hearing assures that the running back can play against the Arizona Cardinals on Monday and against the Los Angeles Rams the following Sunday. Elliott recorded just 112 yards on 33 carries in two games this season after leading the NFL with 1,631 rushing yards last season as a rookie.
Sep. 17, 2017 7:22 PM PT8:22 PM MT9:22 PM CT10:22 PM ET2:22 GMT10:22 7:22 PM MST9:22 PM EST9:22 PM CT6:22 UAE (+1)22:22 ETNaN:� - Ezekiel Elliott ran for eight yards on nine carries Sunday in the Dallas Cowboys' 42-17 loss to the Denver Broncos. He added four receptions for 14 yards.
Analysis: Elliott had absolutely no room to run against a Denver defense that dominated the line of scrimmage throughout, resulting in by far the worst fantasy performance of his young career. Owners should be more concerned about the 2016 NFL rushing champion's potential suspension than him repeating a performance like this one.
Sep. 10, 2017 8:22 PM PT9:22 PM MT10:22 PM CT11:22 PM ET3:22 GMT11:22 8:22 PM MST10:22 PM EST10:22 PM CT7:22 UAE (+1)23:22 ETNaN:� - Ezekiel Elliott ran for 104 yards on 24 carries Sunday in the Dallas Cowboys' 19-3 win over the New York Giants. He added five receptions for 36 yards.
Analysis: With his suspension saga behind him for the time being, Elliott went back to doing what he does as well as any back in the NFL - churn out tough yards and make life easy on his quarterback. After leading the league in rushing yards and attempts during his sensational rookie campaign, the 22-year-old is set up for another monster season provided he's able to be on the field.
Sep. 8, 2017 2:50 PM PT3:50 PM MT4:50 PM CT5:50 PM ET21:50 GMT5:50 2:50 PM MST4:50 PM EST4:50 PM CT1:50 UAE (+1)17:50 ETNaN:� - A federal judge has blocked Dallas Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension over a domestic violence case Friday, setting the stage for a potentially lengthy legal fight with the NFL.
Analysis: Last year's league rushing leader was already cleared to play in the opener against the New York Giants on Sunday night before the ruling by U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant. Now it's possible he could play out the season if this thing drags on. Stay tuned.
Sep. 6, 2017 11:02 AM PT12:02 PM MT1:02 PM CT2:02 PM ET18:02 GMT2:02 11:02 AM MST1:02 PM EST1:02 PM CT22:02 UAE14:02 ETNaN:� - Elliott "seems very focused" a day after getting the news he is eligible to play in Sunday night's season opener against the New York Giants even though an arbitrator upheld his six-game suspension handed down by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
Analysis: Elliott was on the practice field Wednesday for the only padded practice of the week, but his eligibility to play beyond Week 1 remained in question.
Sep. 5, 2017 5:24 PM PT6:24 PM MT7:24 PM CT8:24 PM ET0:24 GMT8:24 5:24 PM MST7:24 PM EST7:24 PM CT4:24 UAE (+1)20:24 ETNaN:� - Elliott's six-game suspension for violation of the NFL's domestic-violence policy was upheld by league arbitrator Harold Henderson on Tuesday, multiple media outlets reported. However, Elliott reportedly will be eligible to play Sunday in Week 1 against the New York Giants due to the timing of Henderson's announcement.
Analysis: The NFL Players Association previously filed a restraining order seeking to block any suspension for Elliott, and a judge is due to rule on by 5 p.m. CDT on Friday, NFL.com reported. The NFLPA's case is centered around its argument that the league violated its own disciplinary process under the collective-bargaining agreement. Elliott would be allowed to continue playing while his federal case works its way through the legal system.
Sep. 1, 2017 6:13 PM PT7:13 PM MT8:13 PM CT9:13 PM ET1:13 GMT9:13 6:13 PM MST8:13 PM EST8:13 PM CT5:13 UAE (+1)21:13 ETNaN:� - Elliott, facing a six-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy, admitted to using drugs while at Ohio State. The revelation, first reported by the Dallas Morning News on Friday, came as Elliott, while under oath, was being cross-examined by an NFL attorney during the running back's appeal hearing this week.
Analysis: While being quizzed by NFL lawyer Daniel Nash, Elliott said that he liked to party and get drunk and acknowledged that he used drugs in college. "I do like to party," Elliott answered per a document obtained by the newspaper. He offered a simple "yes" when asked if he liked to get drunk. Nash then asked: "You like to do drugs?" Answered Elliott: "I did in college." Elliott is appealing a six-game suspension for domestic violence.
Aug. 27, 2017 9:42 AM PT10:42 AM MT11:42 AM CT12:42 PM ET16:42 GMT0:42 9:42 AM MST11:42 AM EST11:42 AM CT20:42 UAE12:42 ETNaN:� - Elliott had eight touches in 10 plays in his only series of the exhibition season on Saturday with a looming six-game suspension for domestic violence before undrafted rookie Cooper Rush rallied the Cowboys with two touchdown passes in a 24-20 win over the Oakland Raiders on Saturday night.
Analysis: The 2016 NFL rushing leader was held out of the first three preseason games even though he was healthy throughout training camp. He is appealing the NFL's conclusion that he roughed up his girlfriend at the time a year ago in Ohio in a case that prosecutors didn't pursue.
Aug. 24, 2017 8:46 AM PT9:46 AM MT10:46 AM CT11:46 AM ET15:46 GMT23:46 8:46 AM MST10:46 AM EST10:46 AM CT19:46 UAE11:46 ETNaN:� - Elliott is likely to make his preseason debut against Oakland in what figures to be the 2016 NFL rushing leader's only game until after his suspension over a domestic violence incident.
Analysis: Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Thursday he was leaning toward Elliott playing against the Raiders on Saturday night. And he said the plan would be similar to Elliott's only exhibition appearance as a rookie, when he had seven carries for 48 yards on 14 snaps at Seattle last year.
Aug. 16, 2017 9:46 AM PT10:46 AM MT11:46 AM CT12:46 PM ET16:46 GMT0:46 9:46 AM MST11:46 AM EST11:46 AM CT20:46 UAE12:46 ETNaN:� - NFL commissioner Roger Goodell appointed Harold Henderson to hear Elliott's appeal, and the hearing is scheduled to take place on Aug. 29, according to NFL Network.
Analysis: The NFLPA on Tuesday officially appealed the six-game ban handed to Elliott, who was suspended for violating the league's personal conduct policy after multiple domestic violence incidents. Henderson was the arbiter for the appeal hearings of Greg Hardy and Adrian Peterson. Henderson reduced Hardy's suspension for alleged domestic violence from 10 games to four in 2015 and upheld Peterson's indefinite suspension for child abuse in 2014.
Aug. 11, 2017 9:02 AM PT10:02 AM MT11:02 AM CT12:02 PM ET16:02 GMT0:02 9:02 AM MST11:02 AM EST11:02 AM CT20:02 UAE12:02 ETNaN:� - Elliott has been suspended six games by the NFL for violating the league's personal conduct policy after multiple domestic violence incidents.
Analysis: Elliott has three days to appeal the suspension and is expected to do so, ESPN reports. The six-game ban is the penalty for first-time offenders of the league's new domestic violent policy. Should the suspension be upheld, Elliott is eligible to return to the Cowboys' roster on Oct. 23 and play in Week 8 against the Redskins.
July 17, 2017 7:18 AM PT8:18 AM MT9:18 AM CT10:18 AM ET14:18 GMT22:18 7:18 AM MST9:18 AM EST9:18 AM CT18:18 UAE10:18 ETNaN:� - Elliott was involved in a late-night altercation at a Dallas bar, according to multiple reports Monday morning. This is bad news for Elliott, who could already face a suspension for a separate incident.
Analysis: ESPN reported no arrests were made in connection with the incident, which took place at the Clutch Bar and Restaurant on Sunday night. ESPN reported a 30-year-old man who said he was physically assaulted was taken to the hospital. But the alleged victim could not identify who had assaulted him. Elliott is currently under investigation by the NFL stemming from a 2016 domestic violence accusation that caused police in Columbus, Ohio, to question him.
May 24, 2017 11:09 AM PT12:09 PM MT1:09 PM CT2:09 PM ET18:09 GMT2:09 11:09 AM MST1:09 PM EST1:09 PM CT22:09 UAE14:09 ETNaN:� - Elliott missed a second consecutive day of voluntary workouts with the Dallas Cowboys on Wednesday after reportedly being involved in a car accident.
