Attorneys for Dallas Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott requested an emergency hearing in federal court in New York on Tuesday on the belief that the running back's six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations would be in place for at least a week without further legal intervention.

Elliott's legal team and NFL lawyers were set for an afternoon hearing in the Southern District of New York, about two hours before what Elliott's attorneys believed was a deadline for active rosters to be set for the Cowboys' game Sunday at San Francisco. U.S. District Judge Paul Crotty was set to hear arguments because the presiding judge, Katherine Polk Fialla, was out of town.

In their request for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction, Elliott's attorneys said NFL procedure required rosters to be set by 4 p.m. Eastern time Tuesday. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said there is no such deadline from the league's perspective.
