OS ANGELES — Two days after
Ezekiel Elliott and the Cowboys
had their world rocked by a
six-game suspension they didn’t see
coming, the volume on outrage and
bluster was turned down.
No more recriminations were
hurled at the NFL office. Vows of
fighting the commissioner’s decision,
of taking this to the mattresses, were
absent. Elliott himself casually stood
on the sidelines in his Cowboys uni-
form wearing a blue visor Saturday
evening, watching his teammates face
the Los Angeles Rams.
Owner Jerry Jones was silent.
It’s too early to know if this is the
calm before the storm. But now that
everyone has gotten over the shock
and raw emotion of Friday, it’s time for
a more strategic conversation.
Elliott and his representatives will
file an appeal before the end of busi-
ness day Wednesday. The league’s
leading rusher then has two ways to
play this going forward.
He can dig in and refuse to accept
the decision, filing an injunction the
way New England’s Tom Brady did
after his suspension. That would allow
Elliott to stay on the field for the Cow-
boys as the case winds its way through
the courts.
