(TSX / STATS) -- The NFL Players Association on Monday filed a request for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction in a New York court on behalf of Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott.

The union's motion is in response to a ruling last week by a federal appeals court, which lifted an injunction that prevented Elliott from serving a six-game suspension over an alleged domestic-violence incident.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans on Thursday voted 2-1 in favor of the NFL, which requested an emergency hearing after a district court in Texas blocked the suspension last month.
