Fantasy Football Elliott's suspension means Week 9 waiver wire flurry

As ESPN's Todd Archer reported, the National Football League has made clear that Elliott's suspension would carry over into the postseason should the Cowboys qualify, making the timeline for a final ruling on Elliott's case all the more pressing for Dallas.

"My energy level is high like the rest of this team", the star running back said at his locker after a federal appeals judge in NY ruled Friday he can play at least one more game - at home against Kansas City - before a three-judge panel takes up his case. This is my name, this is my reputation.

The NFL has made clear that Elliott's suspension would carry over into the postseason should the Cowboys qualify.

Elliott was suspended in August after the National Football League investigated several alleged physical confrontations that occurred in 2016 with Elliott's girlfriend at the time.

Prosecutors in Columbus, Ohio, decided not to pursue the case in the city where Elliott starred for Ohio State, citing conflicting evidence.

Elliott appealed his suspension.

2nd Circuit: "We note that the issuance of an administrative stay does not constitute a resolution on the merits".

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in NY on Friday temporarily blocked a lower-court ruling that required Elliott to begin serving a six-game suspension. "Just glad to be able to go out there and play, glad to be back here with this team".

Lawyers on both sides did not immediately return messages seeking comment. He hasn't considered accepting the punishment, he said, because the consequences affect more than his playing career. The 2nd Circuit ultimately ruled against the players' union. The 2016 Rookie of the Year's Cowboys, at 4-3, are chasing the first-place Eagles in the NFC East.

At home Friday morning, under the impression he wasn't playing this weekend after a Manhattan judge reinstated his six-game ban Monday, Elliott got a call from his agent Friday morning about the temporary hold on the ruling - allowing him to play Sunday against the Chiefs - and rushed to the Cowboys facility.
