Court denies Ezekiel Elliott appeal, suspension upheld

Hearing underway for Ezekiel Elliott

Hearing underway for Ezekiel Elliott

Elliott can still appeal this decision, and the decision issued on Thursday says the appeal would be heard on an expedited basis.

Running back Ezekiel Elliott rushes the football.

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott will be suspended for six games starting immediately after the Second Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the National Football League on Thursday. That means Elliott's suspension is active and barring any last minute legal wrangling, he will not play on Sunday in Atlanta.

President Robert Mugabe said he sacked his long-time ally after he consulted with witch doctors as part of a plot to seize power. Zimbabwe's fired vice president Emmerson Mnangagwa is seen at the Heroes Acre in Harare in this Wednesday, Nov., 1, 2017 photo.

Although Elliott faced no criminal charges from the case, the NFL probe found him to have been in breach of the league's personal conduct policy. He will return for Dallas' Chrismas Eve game against the Seahawks.

Elliott and the NFLPA next can appeal to the full appeals court and then to the U.S. Supreme Court, if they choose.

On Thursday, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals terminated the temporary stay that allowed Elliott to play last Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs and denied the preliminary injunction that might have postponed Zeke's punishment until next season.

NASA is working with Uber on its flying taxi project
To prevent above-ground gridlock, the company will use new air traffic management technology developed by NASA . The partnership, announced today at WebSummit in Lisbon, is not beyond Uber's personal ambitions either.

The NFLPA has argued a suspension would irreparably harm Elliott's career.

The difference this week is that Elliott, the NFL's second-leading rusher, was with his teammates. Elliott's six-game suspension for alleged domestic violence incidents is back in place as of now.

Elliott's base salary for the 2017 season is $1,584,379.

Facebook to use naked images to combat revenge porn
Facebook employees will only see a blurred version of the image, then they'll apply the "hash" to it before it is deleted. CNBC reports Facebook's anti-revenge porn pilot program is available in the U.S., U.K., and Canada.

A federal appeals court last month tossed out his court challenge in Texas, but the league's request for a NY court to affirm that it had acted properly led to a judge ruling last week that Elliott must begin his suspension.
