"If he serves the suspension and then winds up winning the case later on, he can't get those games back", Garafolo said on NFL Network.

The NFL Management Council on Thursday sent a letter to the NY district court, stating its intent to file a motion to confirm the six-game suspension.

Ezekiel Elliott, the focus of the Redskins defense, remains in the legal system's crosshairs as well.

The NFL announced that the suspension was effective immediately, although further appeals are possible, and the Cowboys are not playing this weekend. The six-game ban is the baseline punishment for domestic violence under the league's personal conduct policy, which was updated after former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice's domestic violence case.

It is important to note that the valuation of Bitcoin is highly volatile and more hard to sell than traditional assets. Nettles said interest had been much higher than anticipated and has come from banks, hedge funds and brokers.

Jones wouldn't go into specifics regarding how the team will support Elliott in his quest to have his suspension overturned.

"That's their argument for why there is irreparable harm, and why this thing should be stayed as the case plays out in the higher courts". But the 5th Circuit could deny the rehearing within weeks and few are granted. The parties contracted to have an arbitrator make a final decision. Elliott can not show it was futile to wait for a final decision simply because he believed the arbitrator would issue an unfavorable ruling. "The "fundamental fairness' issue and the irreparable haven't diminished with time".

Elliott's camp, however, is likely to file another temporary restraining order in a NY court to once again fight the six-game span that stems from domestic violence allegations made against him in OH a year ago. This recommendation was not passed on to Goodell and, according to the suit, hindered the commissioner's ability to do his job.

Thursday's ruling came down ahead of the Cowboys' bye week, giving him ample time to restart the legal fight.
