Several reports have come out today saying that Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has tested positive for COVID-19. There are reports that other Cowboys players and some Houston Texans players have also tested positive, but they are doing well. Elliott’s agent confirmed his status when asked about reports of his client being infected.

The NFL has been doing their entire offseason virtually in an attempt to limit players exposure to the novel coronavirus. This year’s draft was virtual, team activities have been virtual up until this week, with some teams electing to continue online coaching this week. The NFL has not postponed their scheduled preseason or regular season games, but there has been talk of shortening the preseason with training camps not starting until the end of July.

Will this “outbreak” affect the start of the NFL season?
