Two weeks ago, the league sought to throw out Elliott's entire lawsuit to restore the six-game suspension. Dallas next plays October 22 in San Francisco. The Cowboys are now on a bye week and don't play until Week 7 but as it stands, Elliott can begin serving his suspension as soon as Week 7.

The Fifth Circuit, which ruled against Elliott in a 2-1 decision, believed that the NFLPA filed its case too soon when they originally took the Elliott case to a Texas court back in September, according to the Dallas Morning News. The NFL filed in NY and they thought this would help them win this case having it away from Elliott's home state of Texas. The league won its Deflate-gate case against Tom Brady in that court.
