A U.S. District Court judge has granted the NFL Players Association's preliminary injunction request on the behalf of Ezekiel Elliott on Friday, meaning the Dallas Cowboys running back's suspension is on hold for now.

Judge Amos Mazzant III's decision allows Elliott to play as the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas reviews the NFLPA's petition to void his six-game suspension. There's no timeline for Mazzant to make a decision on whether to allow the petition to move forward to trial, according to Gabe Feldman, director of the Tulane Sports Law Program. However, there's a strong chance Elliott will now be allowed to play the entire 2017 season as the case makes it way through the court.

In his ruling, which also include the granting of a temporary restraining order request, Mazzant determined Elliott didn't "receive a fundamentally fair hearing" during his appeal hearing in front of arbitrator Harold Henderson, who was appointed by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Mazzant went on to state the "circumstances of this case are unmatched by any case this court has seen."

Elliott has been taking part in practice, walkthroughs and team meetings team meetings this week as the Cowboys prepare for the Giants. It appears Elliott will continue to be a mainstay at The Star and AT&T Stadium for the rest of the season.
