Ezekiel Elliott receives temporary restraining order blocking suspension

Ezekiel Elliott is back again, for the time being.

The judge's ruling came late in the evening after an emergency hearing Tuesday.

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has been granted a temporary restraining order against his six-game suspension by a U.S. District judge in the Southern District of NY on Tuesday, according to NFL Network. In response, Elliott filed another request for a temporary restraining order, which was granted on Tuesday night. Elliott and his team will have to make a case to keep the injunction to presiding Judge Katherine Fallia, when she returns from vacation on or before October 30. Crotty heard the case because Failla was on vacation.

The NFL Players Association filed the motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction as part of the federal lawsuit initiated by the NFL.

The NFL temporarily can't enforce its suspension of Elliott. According to the judge in New York, Ezekiel Elliott was awarded the injunction. The ruling prevents the National Football League from its enforcing its six-game suspension yet.

The case is shifting to NY because the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans ordered the dismissal of Elliott's lawsuit in Texas.

Earlier Tuesday, that same appeals court denied the NFLPA's request to recall its mandate, keeping the suspension in effect.

Elliott's legal team filed a request for a temporary restraining order Monday and will get a hearing today in the Southern District of NY, the person told the AP on condition of anonymity because the filing hadn't been made public.
