CBS Sports wrote that "things could get a little murky as the season moves along. According to Lockhart, he does not believe it is "likely" that Elliott will play the rest of the season.
"It is possible," Lockhart said. "But I don't know that I would go so far as to say likely."
"This could be one of two things. It could be the NFL throwing a public barb out there to try and take a shot at Elliott's legal team and the Cowboys and Elliott's fantasy owners. Or it could be the NFL trying to push the narrative that it is attempting to speed up the legal process in the Elliott battle," noted CBS Sports.

"They're going to try, they're going to try, to hit the guess on that one and speed things up," Garafolo said. "Likelihood ... not a guarantee that Ezekiel Elliott's 2017 season is not affected."
