FRISCO, Texas (AP) - Ezekiel Elliott was accused of quitting by Hall of Fame running back LaDainian Tomlinson in Dallas' 42-17 loss to Denver. Cowboys coach Jason Garrett never directly disagreed. While heaping praise on quarterback Dak Prescott for continuing to show fight in his first blowout loss as a pro, Garrett said he would eventually talk to Elliott about the second-year star running back twice failing to pursue a defensive back after an interception.

FRISCO, Texas (AP) - A federal judge in Texas has denied the NFL's request to suspend his injunction that blocked a six-game suspension for Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott. The ruling from U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant was expected and came after the NFL had already moved on to the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans with the same request.

(AP) - The Dallas Cowboys are the NFL's most valuable franchise for the 11th straight year at $4.8 billion. They also are the top-valued team in the world. Forbes magazine reports the Cowboys' worth increased 14 percent in the last year. That's more than $1 billion ahead of the Patriots. On average, an NFL franchise is worth $2.52 billion.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas coach Tom Herman is defending not using 250-pound tailback Chris Warren more in an overtime loss at Southern California. Herman noted Warren averaged less than four yards per run on his four carries against the Trojans and says there was no reason to keep trying. Warren wasn't considered an option on the play near the Trojans goal line when freshman quarterback Sam Ehlinger fumbled to set up the winning field goal for USC. Texas next plays at Iowa State on Sept. 28.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The former financial adviser to Dallas Cowboy Darren McFadden is being ordered to pay McFadden's attorneys because he failed to provide court-ordered information in a lawsuit by McFadden. McFadden, a former Arkansas Razorback, is suing Michael Vick in federal court in Little Rock for allegedly misappropriating millions of dollars of McFadden's money. Court records show Vick was ordered last Tuesday to pay $3,382.50 for efforts by McFadden's attorneys to get Vick to reply to provide information.
