Stay hearing in Ezekiel Elliott case scheduled for October 2

The Dallas Cowboys will have star running back Ezekiel Elliott at their disposal at least the next two games after the Fifth Circuit set a date of October 2, 2017 for an oral argument, Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio has reported. That could, however, change quickly.

"I can't rule out, ruling (him) out", Lockhart said Friday morning.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit has spoken, sort of.

The NFL sought an emergency stay of Mazzant's injunction, hoping to put the suspension back in place while Elliott's case is in the courts.

Fifth Third Fincl Bank has invested 0.02% in CubeSmart (NYSE:CUBE). (NASDAQ:ATVI) for 1,500 shares. (NASDAQ:ATVI) or 480 shares. Two investment analysts have rated the stock with a hold rating and two have issued a buy rating to the company's stock.

This means that Elliott will play on Monday night against the Cardinals and next Sunday against the Rams, in a game that has become far more compelling after L.A.'s thrilling 41-39 win over the 49ers on Thursday night. The NFL wants Elliott to sit while his case plays out in court, and the league's current request to nullify the injunction presumably represents the last tool at its disposable to accomplish that goal.

Elliott was neither arrested nor charged for the incident.

The court is seeking briefs from both sides by Wednesday on the issue of U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant's jurisdiction.

The NFL then appealed Elliott's case to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, where it now stands. He is coming off Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos in which he posted career lows in carries (nine) and yards (eight).
