Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott denied injunction to block 6-game suspension

3 Stars from Week 9 Better game Dak Prescott or Terrance Williams?			Kevin Jairaj  USA Today

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension is back on.

Ezekiel Elliot's six-game suspension is back on after the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied his request for an emergency injunction at a hearing Friday in NY.

So, Elliott will nearly certainly miss that contest and many experts expect he'll serve the six-game suspension in full after this ruling.

However, the one positive to Thursday's ruling is that he'll now be eligible to return on Christmas Eve in a Week 16 matchup with the Seattle Seahawks and can participate in the postseason if the Cowboys make it. The NFLPA appealed, and the 2nd Circuit granted a temporary stay for Week 9 that let Elliott take the field on Sunday against the Chiefs. After the investigation wrapped in August, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Elliott, saying he violated the league's conduct policy.

Elliott and the NFLPA next can appeal to the full appeals court and then to the U.S. Supreme Court, if they choose.

Qatar Airways buys nearly 10% stake in rival airline
Qatar Airways' investment strategy since 2015 has focused on increasing stakes in airlines based outside the Middle East. The route was axed "for commercial reasons".

About 2:45 p.m., National Football League insiders reported that the appeal had been denied.

The difference this week is that Elliott, the NFL's second-leading rusher, was with his teammates.

The six-game suspension stems from a domestic violence allegation by Elliott's former girlfriend in July of 2016. Elliott was initially granted a preliminary injunction in court, but it was rescinded when a different judge heard the case. Elliott is seeking an expedited appeal, according to reports, but it's unlikely any further ruling will come down before Dallas plays at the Falcons on Sunday.

Elliott's base salary for the 2017 season is $1,584,379.
