According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, there is no deadline for a decision on Ezekiel Elliott’s appeal of his six-game suspension.
In August, the league suspended Elliott for the first six games of the 2017 season for alleged incidents involving former girlfriend Tiffany Thompson.
The hearing for the Dallas Cowboys running back’s appeal lasted more than three days last week and a decision was expected to come soon after, but arbitrator Harold Henderson is under no such direction to make a ruling by the reported 4pm Tuesday deadline.
The NFLPA also filed a restraining order on behalf of Elliott to block the suspension, hoping he’ll be granted a temporary injunction that will allow him to play at the open of the season.
Dallas is set to open the regular season Sunday night against the NFC East rival New York Giants at AT&T Stadium. It’s still unclear whether Elliott will be available for the contest, but Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones expects “good news.”
