Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott will play on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs due to a ruling by Judge Susan Carney of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
The Second Circuit granted Elliott an administrative stay which allows the running back to play while the court decides if Judge Katherine Polk Failla justifiably refused to issue an order which would have allowed Elliott to play while the discussion of his six-game suspension continued, according to Pro Football Talk.
The stay is in place pending the next opportunity for a three judges on the “motions panel” to review the issue, Pro Football Talk Reported.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the Second Circuit’s decision means Elliott will most likely play the rest of the year.
