The six game suspension of Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott for domestic violence was reinstated Thursday afternoon.

Dallas Morning News reporter Brandon George tweeted the following to explain what happens next with Elliott’s appeal process:

Bottom line: NFL won this round as 5th Circuit vacated Ezekiel Elliott’s preliminary injunction & Eastern District of Texas has to dismiss case. So, his 6-game suspension is back on and could start after bye. Zeke’s side will now have to refile and process starts over in New York

Elliott has denied all the allegations that he beat his accuser, Tiffany Thompson, but clearly the NFL does not agree with his defense.
