Ex-NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason’s longtime sports radio partner, Craig Carton, has been suspended from New York station WFAN after his arrest Wednesday on federal charges he took part in a multimillion-dollar ticket fraud scheme.

The New York Post reported the co-host of the long-running Boomer & Carton show on WFAN was busted at his home in Manhattan on Wednesday morning. The New York Daily News reported he was arrested by FBI agents.
Federal prosecutors allege Carton and business partner Joseph Meli collected $3.6 million from investors in the scheme and that Carton pocketed another $2 million separately. Carton allegedly used his money to pay gambling debts to casinos and other third parties, according to court documents obtained by the Post.
The league initially ruled that Elliott could play in Week 1 but then would be forced to sit out the Cowboys’ next six games. Instead, the legal process will play out under the NFLPA’s request for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction, likely meaning Elliott, who rushed for 1,631 yards and 15 TDs as a rookie last season, will be available to the Cowboys for the whole season.
It’s definitely been a tough last 14 months, Elliott said. At times it’s gotten so hard you start to lose faith.
Arbitrator Harold Henderson initially denied Elliott’s appeal of his suspension, but Judge Amos Mazzant blocked the penalty Friday.

When he was asked Sunday night if he had been treated unfairly in the whole process, Elliott said he didn’t want to comment any further.
I’ve kind of stopped worrying about it because it’s not in my hands, Elliott said. At this point I’m focused right now on being the running back I need to be for this team to be successful so we can accomplish what we want to and remaining focused to keep playing at a high level.
