NEW YORK (AP) — A federal appeals court in New York City has denied Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott’s bid to keep a six-game suspension over alleged domestic violence on hold.

Elliott was in court Thursday and the denial of the injunction makes him ineligible in Sunday’s game at Atlanta. The court ruled that Elliott didn’t meet the standards to continue blocking the suspension but ordered a hearing as soon as it could be scheduled.
