Federal judge Amos Mazzant, of the Eastern District of Texas, has made his ruling on the Ezekiel Elliott situation and it greatly favors the Cowboys running back.

On Friday, it was reported that Elliott was granted a preliminary injunction, preventing the NFL from upholding the six-game suspension that was originally handed down in August.

According to SportsDay Cowboys insider Kate Hairopoulos, Mazzant needed to decide whether Elliott received a fair hearing before the arbitrator in the case. It was ruled that the Dallas RB did not.

Following the decision, the NFL Players Association released a statement:

Elliott was suspended for his alleged domestic violence incident involving an ex-girlfriend in 2016. It took a full year for the NFL to conclude its investigation.

Once the investigation was completed, Elliott was handed a six-game suspension. Not long after the initial suspension, Elliott was reportedly prepared to appeal the decision.

It appears now that Elliott will be eligible for the entire 2017 season.
