A petition for a rehearing en banc "is to be used only for cases involving questions of exceptional importance or to secure or maintain uniformity of the court's decisions", according to the 5th Circuit's website, which also says the court "is fully justified in imposing sanctions on its own initiative for petitions which have little merit".

Yesterday, news broke that Ezekiel Elliott's suspension had been put on hold once again until the 5th Circuit Court ruled on his appeal.

The appeals court in New Orleans voted 2-1 in favor of the National Football League, which requested an emergency hearing after a district court in Texas blocked the suspension last month.

Full-panel rehearings are rare. A Federal Appeals court overturned a District Court's decision Thursday. Simply vacating the injunction does not satisfy the need for a ruling on the matter.

It was on Wednesday that the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals vacated an injunction that kept Elliott's suspension from being enacted and allowed the running back to continue to play, and in less than 24 hours the case was ordered back to NY. The NFLPA has since filed a motion to recall the order and allow it the opportunity to seek an appeal in Texas.

It's unclear how long it will take for the next ruling to come down, and the Cowboys are on bye this week, but it could conceivably buy Elliott another game or two before a decision is made. Only six out of 200 petitioned cases were heard by the Fifth Circuit in 2016.

Elliott has 393 rushing yards in four games for the Cowboys this season.

Should the court either not make a decision or reject the petition, Elliott's suspension will end on November 24, the day after Dallas hosts the Los Angeles Chargers on Thanksgiving.
