Ezekiel Elliott's lawyers trying to settle case with NFL

It's them trying to make me something I'm not.

"I had no idea when I came in on Friday that I was going to have the chance to come in".

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.

If he is granted a preliminary injunction by the appeals court, then he will likely be able to play with the Cowboys for the rest of the season while the case goes through the court system. Elliott was not charged by prosecutors for an alleged assault reported to police in Columbus, Ohio, in July 2016.

With Elliott now living to fight another day, we also got into the NFLPA's overall power gained through this case when it comes to how they'll be able to handle future disputes against the National Football League in preparation for negotiating a new CBA. The 2nd Circuit said its brief order does not constitute a resolution on the merits of the court case.

Last year's National Football League rushing champion, Elliott had 93 yards and outgained 2017 rushing leader Kareem Hunt.

A panel of federal judges will convene this week to hear Elliott's request for an injunction that would overturn Judge Katherine Polk Failla's ruling from Monday.

Last Friday, Judge Susan Carney of the Second Circuit issued an administrative stay of Elliott's suspension, which unexpectedly allowed him to return to the Cowboys and play on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.
