After a federal appeals court overturned a Texas court’s injunction — which kept Ezekiel Elliott on the football field — a federal judge granted a temporary restraining order, allowing Elliott to keep playing.
The current Dallas Cowboys running back — and former Ohio State star — has to be happy about being able to play football again. But, when it comes to his social media account, Elliott isn’t sending happy messages left and right.

Sure, Elliott being able to play football again is great. But once his NFL career comes to an end, how will he be remembered as a man?
This is what Elliott is concerned about. Plenty of things in the world are bigger than football, and the second-year tailback understands that his name shouldn’t be tarnished due to what he believes are false allegations.
