Eligible to Play For Now …
But Suspension Still Looms

Ezekiel Elliott‘s on-gain, off-again 6-game suspension by the NFL has been turned back OFF … but still looms large for the Dallas Cowboys running back.
As we reported … a federal appeals court threw out a lower court’s ruling Thursday that was allowing Zeke to play this season, so his suspension became effective again immediately.
But … Elliott’s lawyers made their move in the past 2 days and filed for a rehearing, and a judge ruled his suspension will not begin until the court decides if he gets the rehearing or not.
So, what does this mean for the Cowboys and fantasy football owners??? Zeke can still play!!! Well … for now.
The Boys are on a bye this week, so if the court decides to deny Zeke’s petition for a rehearing before next week … his 6-game suspension will be reinstated and he won’t be on the field against the Niners.
Wonder what Jerry Jones thinks about this?
