Just as the Dallas Cowboys were prepared to begin life without Ezekiel Elliott for six games,womens Duane Brown Jersey albeit reluctantly, the second-year running back received another legal reprieve. For a third time, a federal court intervened to keep Elliott eligible to play for the Cowboys.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on Friday granted the NFL Players Association’s request to keep Elliott’s suspension by the NFL on hold pending the union’s appeal on Elliott’s behalf of a judge’s ruling Monday.womens Brandon McManus Jersey

The development clears the way for Elliott to play in the Cowboys’ game at home Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.Authentic Brandon Marshall Jersey,

The NFLPA’s appeal is to be heard by a three-judge panel of the appeals court. U.S. District Court Judge Katherine Polk Failla on Monday denied the union’s request for a preliminary injunction on Elliott’s behalf.

That was overturned by a federal appeals court in New Orleans

The case shifted to New York,where the league had filed a lawsuit seeking to affirm Henderson’s ruling upholding the suspension. A judge granted Elliott and the NLFPA a temporary restraining order,womens Darian Stewart Jersey, which remained in effect until Monday’s ruling by Failla.

Elliott attended the hearing Monday in New York and was not with the Cowboys this week. Coach Jason Garrett said at a news conference Wednesday that he had not,>Authentic Johnathan Joseph Jersey at that point, spoken to Elliott since immediately following the game at Washington. The Cowboys spent the week preparing to split time and carries at running back between Alfred Morris, Darren McFadden and Rod Smith.

” Garrett said Wednesday. “Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden and Rod Smith will all get opportunities to carry the football for us in different situations …. 'womens Johnathan Joseph Jersey,They’ve had success in this league. Obviously Alfred is somebody that has been productive as a runner in this league. Darren was very productive for us a couple years ago. And we feel really good about Rod Smith and how he’s developed and the role that he can play for us. All those guys will play and we’ll just keep going down the road.”, “We have great confidence in the guys that are gonna play in his place
