Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (21) walks off the field after losing to the Green Bay Packers 35-31 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington on Sunday, October 8, 2017.

The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans lifted an injunction Thursday that blocked a six-game suspension for Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, clearing the way for a six-game suspension. The NFL filed in NY and they thought this would help them win this case having it away from Elliott's home state of Texas. They next play October 22 at San Francisco.

Running back Ezekiel Elliott #21 of the Dallas Cowboys walks off the field after the National Football League game against the Arizona Cardinals at the University of Phoenix Stadium on September 25, 2017 in Glendale, Arizona. He would then return to face the Redskins on November 30. He declined to comment.

The ruling came after oral arguments were conducted last week in New Orleans before a three-judge panel of the court. Authorities in Columbus, Ohio, did not charge Elliott with a crime.

Elliott was suspended in August by Commissioner Roger Goodell after the league concluded following a yearlong investigation that he had several physical confrontations in the summer of 2016 with Tiffany Thompson, his girlfriend at the time.

The NFLPA took its challenge to federal court in Texas. Mazzant is the one who issued the decision on the injunction, and it would be unusual for a judge to overturn his own ruling.

Elliott had been playing while his case was being appealed.

The NFL countered that it followed procedures under the league's labor deal and that the union improperly filed a lawsuit before the appeals process was complete.

The NFL filed in the NY court because it is the home of league headquarters and was the site of Elliott's appeal hearing with Henderson.
