Cowboys' Elliott withdraws appeal of six-game ban

Elliott served the first game of his ban this past Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons after the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied his request for an emergency injunction at a hearing last Thursday in New York.

A series of injunctions and restraining orders had allowed Elliott to play up to that point, but a three-judge panel decided against another injunction.

A hearing was scheduled for December 1, however, Elliott has instead decided he will serve the entirety of his ban.
