The news the NFL world has been waiting on is finally here. In a temporary hearing, an arbitrator upheld Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott’s six-game suspension following the denial of his appeal. Though the suspension was upheld, he will be allowed to play this Sunday in the season opener against the New York Giants. The decision comes after last week’s three-day appeal hearing that included a sworn testimony by Elliott.
In a statement released shortly after the arbitration ruling was made public, Elliott’s attorneys said they “are extremely disappointed” with Henderson’s ruling.
“The only just decision was to overturn the suspension in its entirety,” his attorneys stated.
