The NFLPA announced earlier Friday its intent to file in Texas, claiming "the NFL and its unilaterally appointed arbitrator" are engaged in a "league-orchestrated conspiracy" to "hide critical information which would completely exonerate Elliott".
If Henderson rules that Elliott should be suspended for any amount of games, the court could stay the suspension while it reviews the situation with Elliott potentially playing while the case works its way through the courts.
On Wednesday at the Elliott appeal hearing, appeals officer Harold Henderson heard testimony from Lisa Friel the former New York City prosecutor who now investigates domestic violence cases for the NFL.

He said he had no idea whether she was still in the country or had already left. The court confiscated the 30 million baht that Yingluck had posted as bail.
For now, numberFire's models still have Elliott suspended for the first six games of the season, and we project him to rush 191.5 times for 916.2 yards and 7.34 touchdowns while catching 31.6 passes for 301.9 yards and 1.37 touchdowns.
"Elliott and the NFLPA attacked Roberts' absence as a process failure during the appeal hearing and plan to exploit it if they go to federal court to seek a temporary injunction against a suspension".
Elliott was suspended by the National Football League on August 11 for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. In addition, they planned on noting his refusal to allow them to question Thompson during the appeal hearing, as well as his decision to bar the introduction of notes and material investigators gathered while interviewing her. That may no longer be the case, as ESPN's Adam Schefter said Thursday Henderson will be expected to announce his ruling by Monday. The short answer is that Elliott is looking to avoid a suspension altogether. "(Henderson's ruling) is issued, Elliott and the NFLPA will demonstrate now that they readily satisfy the requirements for preliminary injunctive relief should Elliott's appeal be denied", the filing said.

RAND estimated the number of transgender individuals now serving in the military to be between 1,320 and 6,630, out of 1.3 million total service members.
The NFLPA also said "without testimony from the commissioner, it was not possible to determine the full impact of the conspiracy, or precisely what the commissioner knew or did not know about his co-lead investigator's conclusion that there was not sufficient credible evidence to proceed with any discipline under a League Personal Conduct Policy". "That's all I'm going to tell you".
The suspension is scheduled to begin Saturday and Elliott is eligible to return to the Cowboys' roster on October 23, one day after the team's road game against the San Francisco 49ers.
