Ezekiel Elliott, the Dallas Cowboys star running back who was diagnosed with the coronavirus, said in an interview Wednesday that he feels better but can’t exercise yet.
Yahoo! Sports reported that Elliott’s diagnosis earlier this month was leaked to the press and is considered the most famous player to be diagnosed. The report says Elliot, 24, was interviewed on Twitch, where he said, “I feel good. I feel normal. I still can’t exercise. “He said that at his worst, he suffered from shortness of breath.
Elliott has been one of the most prolific running backs in the NFL since Dallas selected him with the No. 4 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. In three seasons, Elliott has made two Pro Bowls and led the league in two races.
He expressed hope that the NFL season will not be affected by the outbreak, but said, “I just don’t know how they can keep players healthy.” You have to put the health of the players first. She continued: “We have to find a way to make sure that the players and their families, and the coaches as well and their families, are not at risk.”
Elliott agreed to a new contract in September to make him the highest-paid player in his position.
