Ezekiel Elliott isn't taking his six-game ban lying down. The former Ohio State star took heavy criticism when a video of the incident was released at the time, but in testimony given this week, Elliott said the incident was consensual, adding that the two had sex later that evening. However, as with Brady, Elliott might be able to play an entire season before his case is resolved, if he and the NFLPA can get the injunction and begin working their way through the court system.
It's unknown how long it will take Henderson to come to a decision, though there was a report on Thursday afternoon that he is being pressured to do so by Monday, and that the expectation is Elliott's suspension will be reduced.

If Henderson affirms any part of the suspension, Elliott will need U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant to grant the restraining order to be eligible for the season opener September 10 against the New York Giants. Although the 2016 season's rushing leader denied all claims regarding the incident, Henderson must thoroughly assess both sides of the case before coming to a decision, and not be too pressured by the added weight of expectations coming from such a prolific player and the franchise he plays for.
