Ezekiel Elliott's lawyers trying to settle with NFL

After the National Football League said Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott's appeal had no chance of success, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York City issued a one-page order Friday temporarily blocking a lower-court ruling that shot down his previous appeals.

"No", said Elliott when asked if he had ever considered accepting his suspension.

The temporary stay granted to Elliott last week does not have an end date, meaning he will be eligible to play until the court hands down a ruling. He was never charged with a crime by the Columbus, Ohio, authorities who investigated the allegations.

On Monday, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York City said Elliott's case was on the docket for 2 p.m. ET Thursday, Nov. 9.

Donna Brazile allegations highlight mounting schism within DNC
On Friday - in advance of her upcoming book - Brazile dropped news of the agreement between the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Asked if he would fire Sessions if the DOJ doesn't focus its investigative powers on Democrats, Trump said , "I don't know".

"We note that the issuance of an administrative stay does not constitute a resolution on the merits", Susan L. Carney, a judge on the 2nd Circuit, wrote in Friday's filing.

A panel of federal judges will hear Elliott's request for an injunction that overturns Judge Katherine Polk Failla's ruling from last week.

Ezekiel Elliott's lawyers have attempted to settle with the National Football League to reduce his six-game suspension. That means Elliott's six-game suspension for alleged incidents of domestic violence has been put on hold again. The NFL planned to enforce Elliott's suspension beginning Sunday until Friday's intervention by the appeals court. Unlike last week, Elliott will get to practice since he's not now suspended.
