Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott suspension has been put on hold, for now.
Federal judge Amos Mazzant III granted a request by the NFL Players Association for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction to prevent the implementation of the six-game suspension for Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott.
With the injunction granted, Elliott will likely be able to continue playing as the legal process plays out.
Here is a copy of the order:

The 22-year-old RB was already eligible to play against the Giants on Sunday. Before the injunction, Elliott’s six-game suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy was to start on Monday.
This is big for the Cowboys. Elliott led the league in rushing last season, and was a big reason why the Cowboys won the NFC East in 2016.
