Elliott is withdrawing the appeal of his six-game suspension, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. With the latest ruling all but assuring that Elliott misses six games, he's apparently opting to get some closure on the matter and set his sights on a return Week 16 against the Seahawks. He's leaving the country to train while he's prohibited from being around the team, perhaps hoping that some distance will help him get in the right frame of mind. Alfred Morris led the Dallas backfield with 11 carries for 53 yards in Sunday's 27-7 loss to the Falcons, with Rod Smith contributing three carries for 14 yards and four catches for 15 yards (on six targets). Darren McFadden only played one snap and lost two yards on his lone carry.

Elliott, whose six-game suspension is set to begin with Sunday's game against the Falcons, plans to leave the United States for the next few weeks to clear his head and train, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Elliott's suspension was reinstated Thursday when his request for an injunction to overturn the ban was denied by the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Though the running back will miss his first game of the season Sunday, he's holding out hope that his expedited appeal scheduled for Dec. 1 in New York will revoke the final two games of his suspension, which would allow him to return to action as early as Dec. 10 against the Giants. If the full six-game ban remains in place, however, Elliott wouldn't be eligible to return until Week 16 against the Seahawks. Elliott is unable to practice with the Cowboys until the suspension concludes, but the fact that he's taking proactive measures to stay in shape while he remains away from the team bodes well for his chances of returning to form right away once he's cleared to rejoin Dallas.

The Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York set a hearing date of Dec. 1 for Elliott's expedited appeal, Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News reports. After Thursday's setback, there was a sliver of hope Elliott would somehow find a legal loophole to continue playing, but this decision all but guarantees he'll miss the next four games. As a result, his return date will range from Week 14 (Dec. 10 at the Giants) to Week 16 (Dec. 24 against the Seahawks), thereby hindering both the Cowboys' playoff hopes and those of fantasy owners. In the meantime, Dallas will rely on Alfred Morris, Rod Smith and Darren McFadden to keep up a semblance of a ground game.

The first hearing in Ezekiel Elliott's "expedited appeal" before the Second Circuit Court of Appeals has been set for Dec. 1. In theory, it means Elliott could maybe have his ban overturned or delayed before it's through in Week 16, but the Dallas Morning News' Kate Hairopoulos — who has been all over the case — believes it would be a "fast process for whole thing to be completed within the six weeks." Right now, Elliott seems likely to serve all six games before the Second Circuit can decide on the merits of his appeal. That, of course, would make any victory more symbolic than anything else.

Elliott's six-game suspension was reinstated Thursday after his motion was denied by the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York, Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Elliott may not have enough time to string out the legal situation in order to play Sunday in Atlanta, as he has in past weeks. If the suspension indeed holds entering the weekend, the Cowboys backfield is expected to be led by Alfred Morris, with Rod Smith and Darren McFadden pitching in as well.

The Second Circuit Court of Appeals has denied Ezekiel Elliott's motion for an injunction, immediately reinstating his six-game suspension. Elliott has been "granted an expedited appeal of the larger case." His official appeal is still pending, but he's run out of legal maneuvers that would allow him to play while the Second Circuit considers his case. He is well and truly suspended for Week 10, and is eligible to return in Week 16 against the Seahawks. Alfred Morris will start and lead a committee against the Falcons. Rod Smith is expected to be the next man up, with Darren McFadden third. It's possible all three get a chance to establish the "hot hand."
