There's another twist in the legal battle involving the six-game suspension of Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, and this one favors the NFL.

The appeals court ruled that Elliott and the NFLPA had not exhausted all available options when it asked for the preliminary injunction in a Texas court before the league ruled on Elliott's suspension.

The likely next step would be the players group's filing an injunction in the Southern District of NY in hopes of keeping Elliott on the field.

The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans ruled 2-1 to vacate a preliminary injunction issued to the NFL Players' Association by a federal judge last month.

Two weeks ago, the league sought to throw out Elliott's entire lawsuit to restore the six-game suspension. The Cowboys are now on a bye week and don't play until Week 7 but as it stands, Elliott can begin serving his suspension as soon as Week 7. The Cowboys have a bye this weekend before resuming play October 22 at San Francisco. The league's headquarters is in Manhattan, not Texas, and other cases, including the fight between the league and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, were heard in that court.

The case will essentially start all over again, but will now move from Texas to NY, where Elliott has 10 days to refile his motion to fight the suspension. Elliott has denied the charges.
