Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott’s 6-Game Suspension Upheld After Appeal Hearing

Oakland Raiders v Dallas Cowboys

The NFL Players Association released a statement soon after:


Elliott’s attorney released a statement following the decision as well:


As of right now, Ezekiel Elliott can play on Sunday when his team takes on the New York Giants in their season opener.
