The emergency motion filed by the Cowboys running back's legal team was denied by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Elliott was originally suspended for violating the league's personal conduct policy, which stemmed from a very tumultuous offseason experience.

Still, here was are in November and Elliott has yet to miss a single game through the first nine weeks of the regular season. Those contests being against the 4-4 Falcons, the 8-1 Philadelphia Eagles, the 3-5 Los Angeles Chargers, the 4-4 Washington Redskins, the 1-7 New York Giants and the 4-5 Oakland Raiders. It wasn't immediately clear how soon the court would rule on Elliott's claim that he was treated unfairly by the NFL.

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 sheep still recognized the celebrity portraits, even if posing at an angle, with only a 15 percent drop in accuracy. In subsequent tests, the sheep chose the learnt celebrity face eight times out of every ten, said the research team.

Elliott is averaging 19.9 FanDuel points in eight games this season while rushing 191 times for 783 yards and 7 touchdowns with 19 receptions for 210 yards and 2 touchdowns on 26 targets.

The Cowboys running back's appeal will be heard on an expedited basis, but the suspension is on in the meantime. Barring further legal intervention, Elliott would miss that game.
