Ezekiel Elliott's Attorneys Attempting To Reach Settlement With NFL

Elliott scored the go-ahead touchdown in the Cowboy's 28-17 win over the Chiefs.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has granted a request for an administrative stay to the NFLPA on behalf of Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott.

Through eight games this season, Zeke is averaging 19.9 FanDuel points per game while rushing 191 times for 783 yards and 7 touchdowns with 19 catches (26 targets) for 210 yards and 2 touchdowns. This is something I'm going to have to live with beyond football. "We don't anticipate that changing and we'll just play the situation out day by day".

The person said there is little chance the union and league would agree to a settlement by which Elliott would serve a reduced suspension.

Without the injunction or further litigation, Elliott would be out until Week 16 against the Seattle Seahawks on December 24.

None of the judges assigned to Elliott's case presided over the NFL's winning appeal in Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's four-game suspension in the Deflategate case. He was never charged with a crime by the Columbus, Ohio, authorities who investigated the allegations.

Federal courts have intervened three times on behalf of the NFLPA and Elliott, and the National Football League has been barred all season from enforcing its six-game suspension of Elliott under the personal conduct policy.

A panel of federal judges will convene this week to hear Elliott's request for an injunction that would overturn Judge Katherine Polk Failla's ruling from Monday.
