Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott had his six-game suspension upheld on Monday night after a judge in New York denied Elliott’s request for a preliminary injunction after hearing arguments from the NFL and NFLPA, according to multiple reports.

However, U.S. District Judge Katherine Polk Failla did stay her decision for 24 hours on Monday to give the sides an opportunity to appeal. However, Elliott may appear to be running out of legal options according to Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News.

The second-year running back was originally suspended for violating the personal conduct policy stemming from allegations of domestic violence from a former girlfriend in Columbus, Ohio in July 2016. Elliott was not charged with a crime.
Earlier this month, Elliott was granted a temporary restraining order, allowing him to play in the team’s most recent games against San Francisco and Washington.
As of now, Elliott would begin serving his suspension this Sunday when the Cowboys host the Kansas City Chiefs. He would be eligible to play on December 17 against the Oakland Raiders.
