The back and fourth saga between the NFL and Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott continues.
On Tueday, lawyers representing the Cowboys running back filed a motion for a temporary restraining order and a preliminary injunction in U.S. district court in effort to get Elliott on the field as soon as possible.
Apparently, their efforts were rewraded as Zeke was granted that Temporary Restraining Order:
#Cowboys RB Zeke Elliott got his TRO from the Southern District Court. The suspension is stayed for 14 days or until further proceedings.

This means Elliott can play Sunday, but will have to make case to Judge Katherine Fallia when she’s back from vacation before or by Oct. 30

Basically, this means the fight between Elliott and the NFL is far from over and if the Tom Brady / Deflate Gate saga taught us anything, this will take it’s sweet time.
And as Andrew Brandt would say, there will be “more lawyers.”
