The Dallas Cowboys will be without running back Ezekiel Elliott on Sunday afternoon against the Atlanta Falcons. In a hearing yesterday, a judge denied Elliott an injunction to put his suspension on hold due to the league’s collective bargaining agreement. The judge did express concerns about the process the NFL took to suspend the Cowboys leading rusher and expedited the case to the second circuit where Elliott’s lawsuit against the league can proceed on the next available calendar date. Until then, Elliott will remain suspended until he has either served six games or wins his suit against the league.
Meanwhile, it’ll be Alfred Morris, Rod Smith and Darren McFadden to fill in during Zeke’s absence as the Cowboys get ready to play the Falcons on Sunday. Dallas is 5-3 on the season behind quarterback Dak Prescott. The second-year signal-caller out of Mississippi State has over 2,000 total yards and 20 total touchdowns on the season.  Kickoff on Sunday is at 3:25.
