Ezekiel Elliott is not ready to end his fight with the NFL because his name is more important to him than a six-game suspension. Elliott won a restraining order Tuesday that prevents the league from implementing its suspension and allows him to play Sunday at San Francisco. “When you get accused of something of that magnitude, you kind of get labeled as an abuser and that's not me,” Elliott said. “That's not how I want to be seen. That's not what I want to represent to my family. So I mean it's just important for me to fight.”
