Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has been granted a temporary restraining order from the Southern District of New York. It again prevents the NFL from imposing Elliott's 6-game suspension. This restraining order is good for no more than 14 days, so it makes Elliott eligible for Week 7 and potentially Week 8. His legal team will need to again make its case in front of a different judge on or before October 30. (Dallas' Week 8 game is on October 29.) So round and round we go. The simple takeaway: Elliott will play against the 49ers this Sunday. His status beyond that is completely up in the air. RBs Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris are still worth stashing on fantasy benches.

ProFootballTalk.com reports that the judge overseeing Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's case has informed both the NFL and the NFLPA that Elliott remains eligible to play until the Firth Circuit Court of Appeals rules on his petition for rehearing. It's uncertain how long it'll take for that decision. As usual, Elliott's status is as clear as mud.

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has vacated Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's temporary injunction. So his 6-game suspension is reinstated ... for now. As always with this legal stuff, there's a counter-move. Elliott can re-file for a new injunction from the Southern District of New York. It's unclear how long that process will take. Zeke lucks out with a Week 6 bye, but it's certainly possible that he's ineligible when Dallas returns for Week 7. The situation is further complicated by the lack of a sure-fire handcuff. RB Darren McFadden ran with the starters during the preseason, but he's been a healthy scratch for each of the season's first 5 weeks. RB Alfred Morris, meanwhile, has carried 8 times for 87 yards. Both guys are worth stashing as we wait for the situation to hopefully sort itself out.

Cowboys HC Jason Garrett said Thursday that RB Ezekiel Elliott bruised his ribs in last weekend's game against the Rams. Zeke didn't seem impacted by the injury in that one and put in a full practice on Wednesday. We'll keep an eye on this, but consider Elliott's fantasy stock unaffected for now.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's hearing with the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals will take place on October 2, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This is in regards to the NFL's move to block the current injunction that's currently allowing Elliott to play. So, at minimum, Elliott will be eligible for Weeks 3 and 4. It's unclear how long it'll take the court to come to a decision after hearing arguments on the 2nd. And, of course, the court could rule against the NFL's request for a stay. There's still some risk that Elliott is forced to serve his suspension this season, but the most likely outcome is that he's eligible for all 16 games.

After battling a sore hamstring during preseason last year, Elliot didn’t miss a regular game due to injury. The ROY rolled up nearly 2,000 yards from scrimmage on 354 touches. The last major injury he had was a broken left wrist prior to his final year at Ohio State in 2015. He had surgery to repair the wrist, and did not miss a game. Zeke’s young, productive, and durable.
