UPDATE (8:02 pm CST): Representatives for Ezekiel Elliott released their own statement on Tuesday night.

UPDATE: Per Chris Mortensen, Harold Henderson has upheld the six-game suspension for Ezekiel Elliott.

There is still no indication as to whether Elliott will play on Sunday against the New York Giants. It had been reported earlier Tuesday that Elliott would play regardless if a ruling had come down on Tuesday or later in the week.

Per a report from Kate Hairopoulos, Elliott would still play but there is still no official word from the league or the Cowboys.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.

ORIGINAL: Multiple reports indicate that Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot will be eligible to play on Sunday against the New York Giants, regardless of the outcome of his appeal for his six-game suspension by the NFL. The NFLPA is currently seeking a temporary restraining order that would allow the star running back to play in the season opener.

Per Mike Fisher, reports from the court room indicate that the federal judge overseeing the case received an admission from the NFL that Elliott would play regardless of what arbiter Harold Henderson ruled on Elliott’s appeal.

Elliott was handed a six-game suspension back in as part of violating the NFL’s domestic violence policy, stemming back from a 2016 incident with his ex-girlfriend in Columbus, Ohio.

Henderson is still overseeing the appeal case filed by Elliott on whether or not to uphold or suspension. Earlier reports on Tuesday indicated that a ruling could come by the end of business on Tuesday. However, there had be no ruling on the appeal after 4 pm Central Time.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
