Early last week, it was reported that multiple Cowboys players had tested positive for Coronavirus. Most of those players remain anonymous, but Zeke’s name was disclosed as one of the infected.

While Elliott appears to be okay and hopefully his teammates and other players are as well, the general business of the NFL is still being affected by the pandemic. It was announced earlier this morning that the start of Cowboys training camp would be delayed and the Hall of Game between Dallas and Pittsburgh has been cancelled.

Despite these disappointments, our chief concern is that everyone remain safe and healthy in these difficult times. We are delighted to hear Ezekiel Elliott’s good report and wish all others affected by COVID-19 similar results.
