NFL Players Association: Elliott Suspension Would Do ‘Irreparable Harm’

(CBS11) – More legal maneuvering Wednesday to keep Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott on the football field after Sunday’s game against Washington.

The NFL Players Association filed a 12-page court document late Wednesday.

It essentially says Elliott has more to lose than the NFL, arguing two judges already blocked the league’s six-game suspension.

In the document attorneys say, “Elliott would suffer irreparable harm because he stands to miss more than one-third of the NFL regular season and improper suspensions can undoubtably result in irreparable harm.”

The NFL’s appeal to reinstate the suspension is set for next week in New York.

Here is the 12-page document:
