Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Dealing with expedited NFL appeal

The NFL filed an emergency motion Friday with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, seeking a stay of the preliminary injunction that blocked Elliott's six-game suspension, ESPN.com reports. The league has asked for a ruling by Tuesday and no later than Sept. 26.

The NFL appealed the preliminary injunction Monday and now is seeking to expedite the process. If the league were to get its way, Elliott would begin serving his suspension in Week 3 or 4. If not, the 22-year-old running back likely would be able to play the rest of the season while his case plays out in court. The NFL has already stated that Elliott will be allowed to play Sunday in Denver.
