The Cowboys running back has chose to forgo filing further appeals and will serve the remainder of his six-game suspension, Elliott's agents said in a statement Wednesday.
The Ezekiel Elliott saga is finally over.
Last week the second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals removed a temporary administrative stay that allowed Elliot to play on November 5 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
"Mr. Elliott's desire for closure in this matter is in his best interest, as well as the best interests of his teammates, family and friends", lawyers Rocky Arceneaux and Frank Salzano said in a statement to the NFL Network.
Authorities in Columbus never filed charges, but the NFL suspended Elliott after a yearlong investigation for violating the league's personal conduct policy. He won't be eligible to play again until Week 16 against the Seattle Seahawks on December 24. The court ruled 2-1 in favor of the National Football League to reinstate Elliott's suspension after he had already played in the first five games of the season for the Cowboys.
Elliott is expected to release his own statement in the coming weeks. The statement also says Elliott maintains his innocence.
Still, losing Elliott at this point in the season is less than ideal for the Cowboys.
