Jerry Jones says National Football League has not presented Elliott in a fair light

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was cleared to keep playing for at least another week on Monday after a judge turned down an National Football League request for an expedited hearing into his suspension.

Manhattan Federal Court Judge Katherine Polk Failla ruled in a decision entered Monday that the hearing in an ongoing battle over the suspension of the star Dallas Cowboy running back will be held October 30, as originally planned.

Elliott's temporary restraining order allows him to play Sunday, but expires after 14 days.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell originally handed Elliott a six-game suspension in August over domestic violence allegations, but the ban has yet to go into effect as the running back and the NFLPA took the league to court. Elliott allegedly assaulted his ex-girlfriend over a six-day period in July 2016.

The court date to decide whether or not the Southern District of NY will grant a preliminary injunction in the ongoing Ezekiel Elliott case has been set.

The NFL insisted it is not trying to reach a settlement with Ezekiel Elliott regarding his delayed six-game suspension. Overall this season, Elliott has totaled 540 yards and four scores on the ground.

N.M. (KRQE)- The Dallas Cowboys bettered to 3-3 on the season after defeating the San Francisco 49ers at Levi's Stadium 40-10.
