While Ezekiel Elliott continues to insist that he is fighting for his name, his attorneys have attempted to settle his case with the National Football League and have the Dallas Cowboys running back's six-game suspension reduced, a source close to the situation told ESPN.

But this time, there might be a final decision for the rest of the season.

FRISCO, Texas - Unlike last week the Dallas Cowboys will have running back Ezekiel Elliott at practice on Wednesday and Thursday with the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals hearing Elliott's appeal, but his status for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons is not certain.

An appeals court granted Elliott a stay as well as a motion from NFL Player Association lawyers for an expedited appeal Friday morning.

Elliott has repeatedly denied that he assaulted his then-girlfriend, although his comments from the team's training facility in Frisco, Tex., were among his most forceful on the subject.

Bloomberg quoted a senior Saudi official as saying that 11 princes and 38 current or former senior officials were arrested. Earlier, Kingdom Holding reported it swung to a third quarter profit after restating the same year ago period to a loss.

The Second Circut granted him an emergency stay, pending the appeal on Friday.

Elliott did not gain eligibility to play against the Kansas City Chiefs until last Friday.

Ultimately, this battle between the National Football League and Elliott/the NFLPA rages on and appears no closer to being resolved. A federal judge there granted the union's request for a temporary restraining order for Elliott.

Then he was granted the administrative stay four days later on November 3. "We don't anticipate that changing and we'll just play the situation out day by day".
