The Cowboys have filed a strongly worded legal document supporting Ezekiel Elliott in his legal battle against his six-game suspension by the NFL.
ESPN reported Friday that the team has filed a declaration of support for the NFL Players Association’s bid to get a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction that would halt Elliott’s suspension.
According to ESPN, the declaration filed by team general counsel Jason Cohen says an Elliott suspension would cause the Cowboys irreparable harm. The declaration noted that every practice and game that Elliott misses will hurt our team’s chances of having a successful season and making it to the 2017-2018 NFL playoffs and hopefully the Super Bowl.
