RB Ezekiel Elliott Again Preparing For

A federal appeals court in New York City has denied Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott's bid to keep a six-game suspension over alleged domestic violence on hold.

Though Columbus authorities never filed charges, the NFL leveled the ban on Elliott for violating the league's personal conduct policy. If his six-game suspension is upheld, beginning with Sunday's game against the Falcons, then he would be eligible to return the field on December 24 when the Cowboys, now 5-3, face the Seahawks at home. Instead, he'll miss Sunday's game. He will return for Dallas' Chrismas Eve game against the Seahawks.

Elliott will now miss games against the Falcons, Eagles, Chargers, Redskins, Giants, and Raiders. He's also had three receptions for 96 yards and another score. If there are no further interruptions, Elliott will be out until Week 16.

A series of injunctions and restraining orders have allowed Elliott, 22, to play to this point, but a three-judge panel decided Thursday another injunction wasn't in the cards for the Cowboys running back. But the Cowboys as a whole will have to lift the level of their play if they want to catch the soaring Eagles, who now have a three game lead on Dallas in the NFC East.
