Zeke will play Sunday; stay granted by appeals court

"My energy level is high like the rest of this team", the star running back said at his locker after a federal appeals judge in NY ruled Friday he can play at least one more game - at home against Kansas City - before a three-judge panel takes up his case.

"This is bigger than a suspension".

SIGN UP to watch Ezekiel Elliott and the Cowboys, plus RedZone this season on DAZN. But on Friday, the NFLPA's request for a brief administrative stay was granted by the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. This is my name, this is my reputation. This is something I'm going to have to live with beyond football. "So every day is worth fighting".

After last Sunday's win, Elliott said his camp felt "confident" the running back would play the balance of the 2017 season.

Papa John's: Pizza-chain founder blames National Football League protests for slow sales
The company also cut its earnings growth expectations for the year and Papa John's stock fell about 10 percent. And so the controversy is polarizing the customer, polarizing the country, and that's the big difference here.

A series of injunctions and restraining orders have allowed Elliott, 22, to play to this point, but U.S. District Court Judge Katherine P. Failla denied Elliott's request for another injection earlier this week, putting his suspension into effect. Through seven games this year, he's rushed for 690 yards and six touchdowns.

Ezekiel Elliott is expected to play on Sunday after yet another turn regarding the legal case around his six-game suspension.

The suspension came after the National Football League investigated his alleged use of force in the summer of 2016 against his girlfriend. However, as they continue through the appeals process, they've been given another week to have their argument heard and Elliott will play against Kansas City. He hasn't considered accepting the punishment, he said, because the consequences affect more than his playing career. The 2016 Rookie of the Year's Cowboys, at 4-3, are chasing the first-place Eagles in the NFC East.
