Interview: Discussing Ezekiel Elliott's Latest Status With "Mighty"

Byron Jones Interview: Discussing Ezekiel Elliott's Latest Status With "Mighty"

The legal team for Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott are attempting to settle his ongoing case with the National Football League and have his suspension reduced from six games, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Elliott told reporters that he hasn't ever considered accepting his suspension because "it's bigger than football."

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 has repeatedly denied that he assaulted his then-girlfriend, although his comments from the team's training facility in Frisco, Tex., were among his most forceful on the subject. He was never charged with a crime by the Columbus, Ohio, authorities who investigated the allegations. That means Elliott's six-game suspension for alleged incidents of domestic violence has been put on hold again. Florio pointed out that Proskauer Rose isn't representing the NFL in the Elliott case, but the league is using the CBA as a basis for Elliott's suspension.

He played five games before that decision was thrown out by Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals because of improper jurisdiction by the Texas Court.

The sports news site said that a panel of federal judges will convene next week to hear Elliott's request for an injunction that overturns Judge Katherine Failla's ruling from Monday. The trio of backs took the work last week in practice before Elliott rejoined the team.
