Ezekiel Elliott's 6-Game Suspension Back On ... For Now

Breaking News

3:01 PM PT -- An NFL spokesman provided TMZ Sports the following statement ...

"Earlier today, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals vacated the preliminary injunction that prohibited the league from imposing the six-game suspension issued to Ezekiel Elliott for a violation of the Personal Conduct Policy.  The Court also directed the district court to dismiss the union’s lawsuit which was filed on Elliott’s behalf."

"As a result, Elliott’s suspension will begin effective immediately. Elliott is eligible to return to the team on Friday, November 24 following the Cowboys' Thursday, November 23 game against the Los Angeles Chargers."

2:56 PM PT -- Elliott's agent Frank Salzano tells us, “We are currently exploring all of our legal options and will make a decision as to what is the best course of action in the next few days. Until that time we have no further comment on the 5th circuit’s decision.”

Bad news for the Dallas Cowboys ... a federal appeals court has ruled Ezekiel Elliott's 6-game suspension is back on. 

A federal appeals court made a ruling today ... essentially throwing out a lower court's ruling that allowed Zeke to play

So, what does it all mean? 

For now, the NFL's initial domestic violence punishment stands -- and the league has been cleared to enforce the 6-game suspension

The Cowboys happen to be on a bye week -- which gives Zeke's team some time to counterpunch and fight the ruling. 

The NFL had initially moved to suspend Zeke after a private investigation found he physically abused his girlfriend on multiple occasions. 

Important to note, Elliott was never prosecuted for the incidents -- and he maintains his innocence. 

But due to the collective bargaining agreement, the NFL believes it doesn't need a conviction to punish a player.

Mouth breather extraordinaire!!!


ANOTHER B***K MAN who career is going downhill behind dating/marrying/babying the WRONG color woman. #realtalk #facts #TRUTH


The majority of players seem to be just horrible little fellows. Do not care to watch punks playing a child's game anymore.


This guy is a prime example of an entitled, newly wealthy punk that thinks he owns the world and can get away with anything. He needs to go away.


Prob racial, right? LOL. They should drug test him too with those blunt lips.


Three simple rules:
1. Stay off the weed
2. Get rid of your buddies from the neighborhood
3. Beware the white she-devil


He has those pot head lips! Lol...


He should shave his hair like a mushroom so he looks even more like a goomba.


What a waste of taxpayers money!!!


The NFL does not believe it needs a conviction because it doesn’t need a conviction to suspend. Thats an easy one TMZ.
The only question is did they violate due process as per the Collective Bargaining Agreement.


I think Ezekiel is part Native American. He's from the seldom mentioned, yet violent, Smack-A-Ho Tribe.


This guy was made to be a SNL character... Just need the right fake beard and wig on Keenan.


i think he has anger issues


This guy is the epitome of the "famous athlete entitlement syndrome". You broke the rules that YOU AGREED TO. You don't now get to claim you shouldn't be held to said rules. Take your suspension like a man and quit throwing a tantrum every time someone holds you accountable for your stupidity. Next (if he hasn't already), he'll be screaming "racism".


Ouch.,..Ooooo dude you have been "itch slapped" in the pocket.


Close your mouth dude.


HE HAS time to take a ride ON BLACK HIGHWAY...


Hey TMZ, I know you're all for blacks, but I didn't say anything wrong when I posted "If he had accepted his 6 game suspension . . . he would be playing football right now . . . "


He won't be able to kneel for the these missed games.


Damn son, did you leave your hair in the microwave on high for ten minutes because, i got news for you, your hair is done, put a fork in it!


Another case of CTE for sure


I dint choose da wife beating life duh wifebeating life chose me.


NFL players should be fired if found guilty of Domestic Violence.. 1st offense Fired. Hate how these guys think they are above the law.. and then protest the flag. SMH.


Don't come back till ya get a shave and a haircut.


Clearly the NFL is only out to get him because he's black.


Just serve the suspension and get back in shape.


Jerry Jones gets some of his karma.....lol


GEt Back in shape you fat PUD


KARMA! to Jerry Jones😁

#Cowboys players are COWARDS for not protesting what they believe in. It's what many of our ancestors & Black leaders were murdered & died for.





He ain’t doing sheet anyway.


Maybe before they beat their women the blacks can take a knee!


The NFL crawls further up its own ass every day.


The Worthless pig can take a knee all he wants now , for the next 6 weeks..


She's the coalburner. She should have know better than to have relations with a moon cricket.


What a stupid silver back


Dallas season is over. I guess I need to find another team this season.


Another NFL black football player another felony. I’m so shocked that a black man would beat a woman.


So this woman beater believes he should still be able to play his hobby on the weekends? Call the other scum bag (Kapernick) and both of you can “take a need”at you local high school stadium.




I guess that boy can take a knee for the next few weeks, EL OH EL


white people the africans will riot soon. Wake up !!


Wonder if that poor old lady that was attacked by Rose's out of control dog last year feels like a victim too?


white people aren't angry enough yet


yeah but she's a white devil woman who is a racist


Deserved! Society needs to start holding all blacks responsible for their actions!


He might just have to deal with this suspension.
