Hellebuyck, who has a 12-2-2 record with a 2.45 goals-against average and a .925 save percentage, wrested the starting job away from Steve Mason, who was signed to an $8.2 million, two-year free agent contract in the offseason.

Elliott sat out his first of six games this past Sunday against the Falcons after the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied his request for an emergency injunction at a hearing Thursday in New York.
A series of injunctions and restraining orders had allowed Elliott, 22, to play before Sunday, but a three-judge panel decided another injunction wasn’t in the cards for the Cowboys running back.
Elliott is eligible to return for a Dec. 24 matchup with the Seahawks in Dallas. The Cowboys (5-4) have turned to Alfred Morris, Rob Smith and Darren McFadden in Elliott’s absence.
OTL’s assertion was part of a long report that confirmed the New York Times’ story on Jones’ threats to sue the NFL and his fellow owners over ongoing negotiations on the commissioner’s new contract.
