The off-on saga of Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension took another twist on Thursday after a NY appeals court denied the Dallas Cowboys running back's latest request for an injunction. After the investigation wrapped in August, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Elliott, saying he violated the league's conduct policy.

Dallas (5-3), on a three-game winning streak with significant contributions from Elliott, visits defending NFC champion Atlanta (4-4) on Sunday, the Associated Press notes. Instead, he'll miss Sunday's game.

Elliott will now miss games against the Falcons, Eagles, Chargers, Redskins, Giants, and Raiders.

Bledsoe, Bucks should reap benefits of trade
Bledsoe hasn't played in a game for Phoenix since October 21, as the team reportedly has been expediting a trade for him. The Suns are finalising a trade to send Bledsoe to the Bucks , according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe .

After several court cases and appeals, a United States district judge ruled last week to deny Elliott's request to block the suspension. As it stands now, Zeke would not be eligible to return to the field for the Cowboys until their December 24th matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.

In eight games with the Cowboys this season, Elliott has rushed for 783 yards and seven touchdowns.

The road appears to have come to an end for Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott. But the Cowboys as a whole will have to lift the level of their play if they want to catch the soaring Eagles, who now have a three game lead on Dallas in the NFC East. If there are no further interruptions, Elliott will be out until Week 16.
