(New York, NY) — The NFL is taking their legal fight with Ezekiel Elliott to the next court level. The league filed an appeal with the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday over a judge’s decision to issue an injunction in the case. The NFL is also hoping to get a “stay” on Judge Amos Mazzant’s injunction. Mazzant ruled last week Elliott did not receive due process in his hearing before an arbitrator over his six game suspension. The Cowboys running back could play the entire season while the case makes its way through court.
