Ezekiel Elliott granted stay and is eligible to play Sunday

Ezekiel Elliott granted stay and is eligible to play Sunday

ESPN reports Elliott's lawyers have fought to reduce Elliott's six-game suspension with the NFL out of courts, but neither the league nor the Players' Association plan to settle.

"This is bigger than a suspension", Elliott told reporters. "It's bigger than football, them [NFL] trying to make me something I'm not". That's not who I am. This is something I'm going to have to live with beyond football. "Every day is worth fighting".

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Elliott for six games on August 11 after a 13-month investigation concluded he was in violation of the league's personal-conduct policy for the incident in the summer of 2016. Elliott was not charged by prosecutors for an alleged assault reported to police in Columbus, Ohio, in July 2016. That will allow Elliott to remain active until the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit rules on whether he deserves an injunction as the merits of the case are determined. The temporary stay granted to Elliott last week does not have an end date, meaning he will be eligible to play until the court hands down a ruling. While the running back has yet to miss any of Dallas' eight games to date, that could change Thursday in the event the court rules to deny Elliott's appeal and reinstate the suspension, which federal judge Katherine Failla previously upheld in an October 30 hearing. The NFL planned to enforce Elliott's suspension beginning Sunday until Friday's intervention by the appeals court. Unlike last week, Elliott will get to practice since he's not now suspended.
