Inside the contract numbers if Ezekiel Elliott stays suspended for 6 games

Inside the contract numbers if Ezekiel Elliott stays suspended for 6 games

As always, things could change, but as of now, Elliott's six-game suspension is back on, starting with Week 10 against the Atlanta Falcons. Salary-cap wise, Elliott's suspension changes the financial landscape of both the player and the team.

The ruling was made Thursday by a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. According to SI.com legal expert Michael McCann, that means Elliott might have another ruling before the six-game suspension ends. He will return for Dallas' Chrismas Eve game against the Seahawks. The NFLPA appealed, and the 2nd Circuit granted a temporary stay for Week 9 that let Elliott take the field on Sunday against the Chiefs.

About 2:45 p.m., National Football League insiders reported that the appeal had been denied. If his six-game suspension is upheld, beginning with Sunday's game against the Falcons, then he would be eligible to return the field on December 24 when the Cowboys, now 5-3, face the Seahawks at home. Elliott was initially granted a preliminary injunction in court, but it was rescinded when a different judge heard the case.

Elliott, a Pro Bowler as a rookie last season, ranks second in the National Football League with 783 rushing yards.
