"I had no idea when I came in on Friday that I was going to have the chance to come in".
The number of games Elliott's legal team proposed is not known.
If the judges were to make a decision by Friday in which Elliott did not gain a preliminary injunction, then the suspension would start immediately and he would not play this week against the Atlanta Falcons.
Last Friday, Judge Susan Carney of the Second Circuit issued an administrative stay of Elliott's suspension, which unexpectedly allowed him to return to the Cowboys and play on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. He was never charged with a crime by the Columbus, Ohio, authorities who investigated the allegations.

It's was the continuation of a season-long process after he was granted a preliminary injunction, blocking the suspension for district judge in Sherman Texas, the Tuesday before the season opener.
Elliott's legal team believes he was treated unfairly by the NFL, while league attorneys say a labor deal backed by federal law was followed when Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Elliott after a yearlong investigation.
The NFL is unlikely to agree upon a settlement with Elliott.
The sports news site said that a panel of federal judges will convene next week to hear Elliott's request for an injunction that overturns Judge Katherine Failla's ruling from Monday.
