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.

Bucks acquire Bledsoe from Suns for Monroe, two picks

Hundreds of Lidl staff getting pay rise in Northern Ireland
The increase takes the voluntary United Kingdom living wage to £3.15 more than the mandatory minimum wage for 18- to 20-year-olds. More than 3,600 employers signed up to the rates, which are higher than the statutory national living wage of £7.50 for over 25s.

Texans QB Deshaun Watson Out for Year With ACL Tear
The 19 touchdowns are a record for a player in his first seven games, and he has two rushing touchdowns in addition to that total. Shock spread through the NFL Thursday afternoon as the news of Deshaun Watson's torn ACL set in.

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.
