Cowboys' Elliott clear for Sunday at Redskins; hearing set

Cowboys' Elliott clear for Sunday at Redskins; hearing set

Elliott was granted a temporary restraining order last week in the battle over his six-game suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. If the injunction is granted, Elliott will continue to be able to play while the National Football League would likely continue to appeal the decision. If that preliminary injunction is granted, Elliott will likely play for the remainder of the season, as the case works its way through the system.

US District Court Judge Katherine Polk Failla in NY said Elliott's hearing would be held on October 30 as scheduled, meaning the Cowboys star will be free to face the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

Crotty's decision is very much aligned with that of Judge Mazzant, finding serious issues with the process the National Football League undertook in suspending Elliott, and then upholding the decision after appeal.

A federal judge denied the NFL's request for the preliminary injunction hearing in the case to be moved up, ensuring that Elliott will remain eligible on Sunday.

The Cowboys are back in action on Sunday to take on the 49ers, who have yet to win a game this season. As a result, Elliott will be available to play against the Washington Redskins in Week 8.

Last year, during his rookie campaign, Elliott led the league with 1,631 yards on the ground, scoring 15 touchdowns as a rusher and averaging 5.1 yards per carry. The team is now struggling with a 2-3 record overall.
