Dallas Cowboys' Elliott eligible another week after ruling

"The NFL can not show any good cause for its proposed dramatic departure from the Court's ordinary scheduling requirements", the NFL Players Association successfully argued on behalf of Elliott.

Elliott has rushed for 540 yards and four touchdowns on 131 carries in six games this season while his case was in the court system. She set one for October 30, a day after the Cowboys visit Washington. He was granted a second temporary restraining order against the league last week to prevent the start of a six-game suspension.

Elliott's temporary restraining order allows him to play Sunday, but expires after 14 days.

Without the preliminary injunction, Elliott's suspension would no longer be blocked by the courts, and the National Football League could impose the six-game suspension levied against him in August in response to domestic violence allegations by Elliott's former girlfriend.

Judge Katherine Polk Failla of the U.S. District Court in NY rejected the NFL's request Sunday for an expedited hearing on Elliott's preliminary injunction of his six-game suspension. Overall this season, Elliott has totaled 540 yards and four scores on the ground.

The NFL insisted it is not trying to reach a settlement with Ezekiel Elliott regarding his delayed six-game suspension.

After Sunday's matchup in San Francisco, the Cowboys will travel to Washington to take on the Redskins on 10/29.
