League fights back to enforce Ezekiel Elliott suspension
Jaylon Smith finally paying dividends for Cowboys

The case before the judge in Sherman, Texas, has nothing to do with the underlying issues of Elliott's suspension - whether or not he is guilty of domestic violence - but is about something critical in a legal sense, whether or not the National Football League committed procedural errors that did not allow Elliott a fair hearing. The NFL filed notice with the Eastern District of Texas on Monday that it would appeal to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.
Jones told The Fan's Shan & RJ how proud he was of his team following the 19-3 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday night.
Mazzant ruled that Elliott would suffer irreparable harm if the suspension took effect while the legal case plays out, and that Elliott also met the other criteria necessary for an injunction. Harold Henderson, who was the arbitrator assigned by Goodell to hear the appeal, upheld the league's decision and Elliott's suspension.
When Jones or the Cowboys are talking about Elliott's complicated case - which stems from allegations of domestic abuse and the NFL's contention that Elliott violated the league's personal conduct policy - they might be arguing about fairness, procedural details or legal maneuvering, but they're also talking about their season.
The case could play out for months. Brady played the entire 2015 season before a ruling finally came forcing him to sit the first four games of the 2016 season. Only the judges involved here have real access to the future of Elliott on the field, and even they probably don't know exactly how this is going to play out. After it appeared that RB Darren McFadden would step into the hole left by Ezekiel Elliott's apparent suspension, Elliott's injunction against the National Football League meant that the Cowboys listed McFadden as inactive for the season opener.
"The NFL's actions demonstrate that from the very beginning of the decision-making process, a cloud of fundamental unfairness followed Elliott".
The 22-year-old Elliott denied Thompson's allegations in sworn testimony during an appeal hearing last week.
The judge also faulted the league for what he saw as several efforts to hide the opinion of co-lead investigator Kia Roberts.
Columbus, Ohio, prosecutors declined to pursue charges because of conflicting and inconsistent information.
Elliott has been involved with domestic violence before, including an incident where he broke a gentleman's nose at a Dallas bar.
Now the star Dallas running back waits to see if his regular-season debut will be on hold until late October. The league said its conclusions were based on photographs, text messages and other electronic evidence.
Elliott's attorney's claim that Thompson fabricated the story of Elliott assaulting her, and a substantial lack of evidence partially support that defense. The second-year running back opened the season with 104 yards rushing on 24 carries. Although the Giants defense gave up a few too many 3rd and longs against the Cowboys, we look to be in good shape on that side of the ball.
