About a week ago, it was reported that Ezekiel Elliott tested positive for COVID-19 and the running back provided an update on his status.
“I’m feeling good,” Elliott said (via Scooter Magruder). “I would say I had maybe one or two days when I felt symptoms. Even then, it wasn’t too bad. I had a cough and a little bit of shortness of breath. Now, I would say I feel good. I feel normal.”
Elliott added that he still isn’t able to work out because of the illness. It was reported that other Cowboys players had tested positive for COVID-19, though the names of the players have not surfaced.
Dak Assures Himself That He’ll Get Paid In 2020
As we passed along earlier this week, Dak Prescott has signed his franchise tender. That doesn’t necessarily mean that Prescott will play on it, as he has until July 15 to work out a long-term deal. Prescott’s franchise tender is worth $31.4 million.
Dallas has both publicly and privately exclaimed that Prescott is the Cowboys’ quarterback of the future and Dak has repeatedly said that he doesn’t want to play for any other team.
Prescott led the Cowboys to 8 wins in 2019, which was his worst mark since taking over for Tony Romo as a rookie back in 2016. The Cowboys’ over/under is 9.5 (FanDuel) and they are -260 to make the playoffs.
