CelebNSports247.com reports that Ezekiel Elliott wasn’t happy that news of his positive test was leaked.
Though, Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys running back, said on Twitch Wednesday, via WFAA.
I’m feeling good! I would say I had maybe one or two days where I felt symptoms, and even then, it wasn’t too bad. I had a cough and a little bit shortness of breath. Now, obviously, I feel good. I feel normal.
It’s unclear how or when Elliott caught the virus, his mom, Dawn Elliott, did offer a few details about the circumstances.
Zeke’s mom, Dawn revealed that Ezekiel had been hanging around someone who ended up testing positive three days after they had been hanging out. Zeke, his mom, and sister were all hanging out with the person.
All three members of the Elliott family were tested and Zeke was the only one who tested positive for the virus.
Elliott may have said that he is “feeling good,” but he basically has to sit at home. From the sound of it, that’s what he’s going to be doing for at least another week.
I still can’t work out. – – I got to wait. I could have went and gotten retested this week, I just decided it won’t hurt to wait another week and give myself more time to rest up, but I feel good.
Since he contracted the virus, Elliott put more thought into whether or not the NFL should play this year.
Here is what he thinks “it has to be right” about going back to the NFL field:
I got corona, and it really didn’t affect me much. But a lot of people have kids. They may have kids with asthma. Their parents or grandparents may live with them. I do hope we have a season, but it has to be right.
Other teams with infected players are the Broncos, Steelers, Texans, 49ers, Buccaneers, and Rams.
Over the weekend the NFLPA isn’t taking any chances about seeing the virus spread. The player’s association issued an advisory asking players to stop working out in groups.
