Ezekiel Elliott's lawyers trying to settle with NFL

Ezekiel Elliott's lawyers trying to settle with NFL

"No", said Elliott when asked if he had ever considered accepting his suspension. "It's bigger than football, them [NFL] trying to make me something I'm not. So every day is worth fighting". Elliott, who was not arrested or charged in the case, maintains his innocence after being accused of assaulting his former girlfriend in Columbus, Ohio.

Early Friday morning, a judge from the 2nd circuit court temporarily blocked a lower-court ruling that required Elliott to begin serving a six-game suspension. That ruling means Elliott will play in the Cowboys' home game against the Chiefs on Sunday.

"We note that the issuance of an administrative stay does not constitute a resolution on the merits", Susan L. Carney, a judge on the 2nd Circuit, wrote in Friday's filing.

The NFLPA has taken the case to court on Elliott's behalf and likely would have to sign off on any settlement. The NFL appealed to a federal appeals court in New Orleans, which overturned the injunction and ruled that the district court in Texas didn't have jurisdiction in the case because the union filed its lawsuit before NFL-appointed arbitrator Harold Henderson decided Elliott's appeal.

"When we started game planning, we didn't think he would be available to us", Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said.

Elliott's legal team believes he was treated unfairly by the NFL, while league attorneys say a labor deal backed by federal law was followed when Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Elliott after a yearlong investigation.
