MOTION FOR TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER

THIS MATTER having been opened by the National Football League Players Association,

on its own behalf and on behalf of Ezekiel Elliot, upon Motion for Temporary Restraining Order

and Preliminary Injunction, and the Court, having considered the Motion, is of the opinion that the

Motion is meritorious;

THE COURT FINDS that: (1) a substantial likelihood exists that Mr. Elliott will prevail

on the merits; (2) there is a substantial threat of irreparable injury to Mr. Elliott if the temporary

restraining order is not issued; (3) the threatened injury to Mr. Elliott if the temporary restraining

order is not issued outweighs any harm that will result if the order is issued; and (4) the grant of

the temporary restraining order will not disserve the public interest.

IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Defendants, the National Football League and the

National Football League Management Council (collectively, the NFL or Defendants), their

agents, servants, employees, and attorneys are hereby temporarily restrained from instituting any

suspension against Mr. Elliott pending resolution of this action, effective immediately.
