Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is eligible to play Sunday after a federal judge in New York granted him a temporary restraining order on Tuesday. As a result, Elliott is expected to be on the field when the Cowboys face the San Francisco 49ers in Santa Clara, Calif. The NFL Players Association filed the motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction as part of the federal lawsuit initiated by the NFL.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, woefully deficient away from home this season, already were facing a stiff challenge heading into Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills at New Era Field. Now they might be forced to play without quarterback Jameis Winston. The Buccaneers (2-3) lost Winston to a sprained shoulder joint in a 38-33 loss against the Arizona Cardinals, when they fell behind 31-0 early in the third quarter.
