Ezekiel Elliott eligible to play for time being

Jerry Jones ready to exhaust all options to get his running back on the field

The NFL immediately reinstated Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott's six-game domestic violence suspension on Thursday after the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel in New Orleans court granted the NFL's emergency request to dismiss that injunction that Elliott had been playing under.

"We are now exploring all of our legal options and will make a decision as to what is the best course of action in the next few days", Elliott attorney Frank Salzano said.

"The NFLPA believes that the order from the judge who initially issued the injunction blocking the suspension keeps the injunction in place until Elliott has a chance to file a petition for rehearing before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, and until the Fifth Circuit issues a ruling on the petition".

The Cowboys don't play again until next Sunday, Oct. 22, at San Francisco.

Turkey did manage to find a consolation in second-half injury time from Kerem Kesgin's powerful shot from the edge of the area. Colombia's opener came off a poor US defensive sequence in the third minute, with Juan Vidal pouncing from close range.

District Court had granted Elliott a temporary injunction, allowing him to play. Elliott and the Cowboys take on the 49ers Week 7. Brady went on to accept his suspension, which saw him sit out the first four games of the 2016 National Football League season.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell issued Elliott's suspension in August, following a year-long investigation that concluded the running back physically assaulted ex-girlfriend Tiffany Thompson on three occasions in July 2016.

The NFL ratified its policy, which calls for an automatic six-game suspension for first-time offenders, in December 2014 following high-profile controversies involving Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and Greg Hardy.

Prosecutors in Columbus, Ohio, decided not to pursue the case in the city where Elliott starred for Ohio State, citing conflicting evidence.
