Is the 2020 NFL season in danger of cancellation?
TSC News editor Fred Richani discusses running back Ezekiel Elliott being one of several Dallas Cowboys, along with multiple Houston Texans players, to test positive for COVID-19 / coronavirus, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Is the 2020 NFL season in more trouble than we thought?
Several #Cowboys players & several #Texans players have tested positive for COVID-19 recently, sources tell me & @TomPelissero. None of the players are believed to have been in their team facilities. The teams followed proper health protocols.
A month ago, NFL chief medical officer Dr. Allen Sills said: “We fully expect that we will have positive cases that arise. … Our challenge is to identify them as quickly as possible and prevent spread to any other participants.” The teams appear to have done that.
#Cowboys star RB Ezekiel Elliott is one of the players who has tested positive for the Coronavirus, his agent Rocky Arceneaux confirmed to me. Arceneaux said Elliott is feeling good.
From the #Cowboys: “Due to federal and local privacy laws, we are unable to provide information regarding the personal health of any of our employees.”@RapSheet
