FRISCO, Texas — Suspended Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is back on the field after being granted an administrative stay Friday by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.He will play against the Chiefs on Sunday and will remain eligible until a three-judge panel from the Second Circuit holds an emergency injunction hearing, possibly next week, and decide whether to overturn Southern District Judge Katherine Failla's ruling from Monday to deny a preliminary injunction.A date has not been set, but the motion has been referred to the next available three-judge panel. It could rule from the bench or take a few days.Elliott, who was away from the team all week under the terms of the suspension, was back at the Cowboys facility Friday morning. He participated in the early walk-through, attended team meetings and practiced with an excited and welcoming group of teammates. "My agent called me," he said. "As soon as he called me I threw a sweatshirt on, grabbed my backpack and was on my way here. My energy level is high like the rest of this team. I think everyone is excited."FOCUS ON SAVAGE: With Deshaun Watson's year done, the Texans will look to Tom Savage to try to salvage their season.
