"This is bigger than a suspension", Elliott told reporters.

Elliott rushed 27 times for 97 yards and a touchdown on short notice in the Cowboys 28-17 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs last Sunday. It's them trying to make me something I'm not. That's not who I am.

"I had no idea when I came in on Friday that I was going to have the chance to come in. So every day is worth fighting".

The 22-year-old Elliott was originally hit with the six-game ban back in August for domestic abuse allegations from the previous summer. Elliott was not charged by prosecutors for an alleged assault reported to police in Columbus, Ohio, in July 2016.

None of the judges assigned to Elliott's case presided over the NFL's winning appeal in Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's four-game suspension in the Deflategate case.

Users on the platform also noted that the incident raises concerns about the firm's ability protect the account's security. Some have wondered whether his threatening tweets to North Korea were at odds with Twitter's terms and conditions .

He played five games before that decision was thrown out by Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals because of improper jurisdiction by the Texas Court.

The Second Circut granted him an emergency stay, pending the appeal on Friday.

A panel of federal judges will convene this week to hear Elliott's request for an injunction that would overturn Judge Katherine Polk Failla's ruling from Monday.

Ezekiel Elliott's lawyers have attempted to settle with the National Football League to reduce his six-game suspension. The NFL planned to enforce Elliott's suspension beginning Sunday until Friday's intervention by the appeals court.

The NFL is unlikely to agree upon a settlement with Elliott.
