Breaking News: Ezekiel Elliott likely to play full season; temporary restraining order granted. This is huge. Ezekiel Elliott was granted his temporary restraining order by the court today, which means he can play past Week 1. The court ruled that Elliott did not receive a “fundamentally fair hearing” from the NFL. He could still be denied in November, according to a few sources reporting on this right now, but the runner is expected to be available for the rest of the year. I wish we knew for certain nothing could change in November, but for now, things look like he will be available all year long. Talk about this on our forums now.
