ESPN is reporting that a federal judge has granted the National Football League’s Players Association a temporary injunction, putting the NFL’s six game suspension of Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott on hold.

Fron espn.com:

“Elliott was already eligible to play in Sunday’s season opener against the New York Giants, but his suspension for violating the league’s personal conduct policy was to begin Monday. With the injunction granted, Elliott likely will be able to continue playing as the legal process plays out.

If the request had been denied, Elliott would have appealed to the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to ask for an immediate stay.”

In early August, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell imposed the suspension after league investigators came to the conclusion that Elliott had assaulted a former girlfriend in summer of 2016. Goodell’s suspension of Elliott came despite a Columbus, Ohio district attorney deciding not to pursue charges against the former Ohio State star, citing contradictory evidence.

Earlier this week, an arbiter appointed by the NFL had denied an appeal to lesson or eliminate Elliott’s punishment.
