If the suspension extends beyond this Sunday, (as there is still more legal action pending in the courts) the second-year back would miss three pivotal divisional contests that are scheduled for the next six games.
According to Pro Football Talk, an appellate court will hear his case on an expedited basis, and Elliott will remain suspended until then.
Elliott will now miss games against the Falcons, Eagles, Chargers, Redskins, Giants, and Raiders.
Daylight Saving Time Ends Sunday
Warm, dry weather will accompany the time change this weekend, so enjoy some time outdoors after getting that extra hour of sleep. After the national repeal in 1919, some states and cities, including New York City and Chicago, continued to shift their clocks.
The court's ruling allows the NFL to re-suspend Elliott for six games, per NFL Network's legal analyst Gabe Feldman. The collective bargaining agreement between the National Football League and NFLPA affords commissioner Roger Goodell the power to make decisions on suspensions.
Due to Thursday's verdict, Elliott's suspension will be reinstated by the league immediately, with an official transaction notice from the NFL expected soon.
Elliott and the NFLPA challenged the decision-making process in court, arguing the NFL's investigation was fundamentally unfair to Elliott. The hearing is scheduled for 2 p.m. ET in the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in NY.
