Elliott's injunction appeal hearing set for Thursday in NY federal court

Elliott's injunction appeal hearing set for Thursday in NY federal court

Quinn told reporters on Monday that he will prepare for the Cowboys to have their No. 1 running back come Sunday.

The NFL Players Association argued recently in its appeal that Elliott will sustain irreparable harm without an injunction, saying that "courts have consistently concluded that professional athletes suffer irreparable harm when threatened with a potentially wrongful suspension".

Federal courts have intervened three times on behalf of the NFLPA and Elliott, and the National Football League has been barred all season from enforcing its six-game suspension of Elliott under the personal conduct policy.

The Second Circut granted him an emergency stay, pending the appeal on Friday.

Ezekiel Elliott's lawyers have attempted to settle with the National Football League to reduce his six-game suspension.

Elliott, who has played in all seven of the Cowboys' games this season, would've had to sit out Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs had he not secured his latest favorable ruling. The trio of backs took the work last week in practice before Elliott rejoined the team.

He played five games before that decision was thrown out by Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals because of improper jurisdiction by the Texas Court. A federal judge there granted the union's request for a temporary restraining order for Elliott.

If the three-judge panel rejects the request for a preliminary injunction with an announcement Thursday night or Friday, then Elliott's six-game suspension would begin.
