Agent Rocky Arceneaux said, via Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, that running back Ezekiel Elliott has tested positive. Arceneaux added that Elliott is feeling good at the moment. Elliott has not been at the team’s facility as players rehabbing injuries are the only ones currently allowed inside.

Ezekiel Elliott was among several Cowboys and Houston Texans players to have tested positive for the virus. There hasn’t been any further details to emerge from the situation, but it’s another troubling matter that has arose. He’s the latest prominent NFL player to have contracted the coronavirus as Denver Broncos star outside linebacker Von Miller had it earlier this year, and New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton also dealt with the illness.

Although the NFL has yet to air any concern over the matter, it shows that the virus is still impacting many people. Professional athletes are no different, as there is yet to be any vaccine or effective treatment to eliminate it. There should be more clarity on this front in the coming days as Elliott will take the precautionary measures so that he can get past the virus and move back to good health.
