This is something I'm going to have to live with beyond football.

Ahead of the Cowboys' week nine home game against the Chiefs, it was announced early in the morning that RB Ezekiel Elliott would be eligible to play as the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the recent decision to not uphold his suspension. "Every day is worth fighting".

The number of games Elliott's legal team proposed is not known.

With oral arguments taking place on Thursday at 2:00 p.m. ET, a ruling should be made prior to the Cowboys' Week 10 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

The NFL Players Association and the NFL are not giving serious consideration to a settlement in the case involving Ezekiel Elliott's suspension, according to a person with knowledge of the case. Elliott, who was not arrested or charged in the case, maintains his innocence after being accused of assaulting his former girlfriend in Columbus, Ohio.

The bantamweight champion admits that if he were to fight at flyweight, dropping the ten pounds would require a lifestyle change. Dillashaw, TKO, round 2. "[The bantamweight title] should've been around my waist the whole time", Dillashaw said.

It's unclear how many games they have proposed to the NFL, but neither the league nor the NFLPA intends to settle this case and have Elliott's suspension reduced at this time, sources said.

The NFL is unlikely to agree upon a settlement with Elliott.

Elliott was not allowed to be at the team's training facility in Frisco, Tex., Wednesday or Thursday after U.S. District Court Judge Katherine Polk Failla denied Elliott an injunction after a status hearing in NY on Monday.

Elliott received an administrative stay from the NY federal court last Friday, reinstating his eligibility for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
