(TSX / STATS) -- Ezekiel Elliott will be allowed to play at least another week after a federal judge on Monday rejected the NFL's request for an expedited hearing on the Dallas Cowboys running back's six-game suspension for alleged domestic assault against his ex-girlfriend.

Judge Katherine Polk Failla of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York ruled Elliott's hearing will be held, as originally scheduled, on Oct. 30.

The latest ruling keeps Elliott eligible to play this Sunday against the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field under the temporary restraining order granted last Tuesday by another U.S. District judge in New York blocking the suspension.
