The NFL filed an emergency motion a federal appeals court Friday https://www.cowboysdaclub.com/nolan-carroll-jersey-c-18.html, hoping to get a swift ruling on its request to overrule a judge who blocked a six game suspension for star Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott in a domestic violence case in Ohio.

The league filed its request with the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, even though a federal judge in Texas hasn t ruled on a request to put the injunction on hold while an appeal is pursued.

The emergency motion asks the court to rule on the request to suspend U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant s injunction as early as Tuesday, the start of the practice week before the Cowboys third game of the season against the Cardinals in a Monday Night Football game on Sept. 25 in Glendale.

If the ruling isn t made by Tuesday https://www.cowboysdaclub.com/duke-thomas-jersey-c-20.html, the NFL is asking for a decision by Sept. 26, the start of practice before Dallas Week 4 home game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Elliott had already been cleared to play in a 19 3 win over the New York Giants in the season opener before Mazzant granted his request for an injunction. Last year s NFL rushing leader will play Sunday at Denver under Mazzant s ruling.

The 22 year old Elliott was suspended by Commissioner Roger Goodell in August after the league concluded Brice Butler Jersey following a yearlong investigation that he had several physical confrontations last summer in Ohio with his girlfriend at the time. The NFL players union sued on Elliott s behalf.

In its emergency motion, the NFL reiterated previous arguments that Elliott s attorneys sued prematurely because arbitrator Harold Henderson had yet to rule on the running back s appeal of the suspension. https://www.cowboysdaclub.com/xavier-woods-jersey-c-19.html The appeal was denied the same day as arguments over the request for an injunction from Mazzant in Sherman, Texas, about 65 miles north of Dallas.
