It looks like Ezekiel Elliott will back on the field this Sunday against the 49ers, as the U.S. District Court Judge in New York has ruled that the arbitration decision was subject to judicial review, and the review would be meaningless, basically, if he served the suspension while it was reviewed on the merits.
So, the Ezekiel Elliott case is now in its third state, five judges have weighed in and his six-game suspension remains on hold. pic.twitter.com/e0R8AxFimu

This came less than a week after a panel of 5th Circuit Judges ruled in favor of the NFL, that the NFLPA’s filing in their circuit (in Texas) was premature before the arbitrator had issued a final ruling.
So for now, the case will go forward in New York, and Ezekiel Elliott will be on the field until a judge in that circuit says otherwise.
