El­liott loses lat­est le­gal bat­tle with NFL

Calgary Herald - - SPORTS -

A fed­eral judge has cleared the way for the NFL to en­force a sixgame sus­pen­sion of Dal­las Cow­boys run­ning back Ezekiel El­liott over do­mes­tic vi­o­lence al­le­ga­tions. U.S. Dis­trict Judge Kather­ine Polk Failla Mon­day de­nied the re­quest for a pre­lim­i­nary in­junc­tion from play­ers’ union at­tor­neys work­ing for El­liott. It’s the sec­ond time a fed­eral rul­ing has over­turned a re­prieve that kept El­liott on the field and likely will lead to another ef­fort by El­liott’s le­gal team to pur­sue other reme­dies.
