Ezekiel Elliott will begin serving his six-game suspension for domestic violence following a 24-hour stay, a federal judge ruled Monday.

U.S. District Judge Katherine Polk Failla announced her decision to uphold the NFL’s six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations several hours after lawyers for the NFL Players Association and the NFL Management Council argued their positions on Elliott’s suspension again – mostly repeating their prior arguments.

“The NFLPA has failed to demonstrate a substantial question warranting the extraordinary remedy of injunctive relief or a balance of hardships that decidedly weighs in its favor,” Failla wrote in her ruling….

And now a federal judge in Texas will determine whether Elliott must begin serving his sentence in Week 2 or if the NFL’s form of justice deserves more scrutiny in court.

And it doesn’t sound as if court went well for the NFL on Tuesday night.

League attorneys acknowledged to presiding Judge Amos Mazzant in federal court on Tuesday night that Elliott’s suspension cannot begin this weekend because NFL arbitrator Harold Henderson had not ruled on Elliott’s appeal of Roger Goodell’s decision by 4 p.m. on Tuesday.

The Cowboys announced on Twitter Elliott will play Week 1 against the Giants….
