Attorneys: Arbitrator Upholds Elliott Suspension


SHERMAN, Texas - Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott's attorneys said his six-game suspension over a domestic violence case has been upheld, but he will play the opener because of the timing of the arbitrator's decision.

At the start of the hearing, NFL attorney Daniel Nash said Elliott could play Sunday night against the New York Giants because Henderson's ruling came too late in the day for it to be enforced this weekend.

Elliott's attorneys said they were "extremely disappointed with Mr. Henderson's inability to navigate through league politics, and follow the evidence." U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant said he would rule on Elliott's request for a temporary restraining order by Friday.

The probe led to the firing of former football coach Art Briles and the departure of former school President Ken Starr.

The plaintiff known as "Elizabeth Doe" had alleged knowledge of at least 52 acts of rape by more than 30 football players over several years.
