    The judge overseeing Ezekiel Elliott's suspension case said the case cannot move forward until a rehearing is filed and resolved, according to Pro-Football Talk.

    A source told Pro-Football Talk that the U.S. District Court Judge Amos L. Mazzant informed the NFL that he will not lift the injunction that is currently preventing the suspension until the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit rules on Elliott's petition for rehearing.

    NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy tweeted Saturday that "The suspension of Ezekiel Elliott remains in place. The order from the district court is administrative and does not in any way change the appeals court's order vacating the preliminary injunction. Any reporting to the contrary is inaccuratre and misleading."
