Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott feeling better after positive COVID-19 test
With training camp a month away, players around the league have started to ramp up their workouts in preparation for the 2020 NFL season. Fortunately, it appears Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has made significant progress since it was revealed that he tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).
Elliott recently provided an update on where he is at in his recovery at this time, via Jori Epstein of USA Today:
“I would say I had maybe one or two days where I felt symptoms and even then it wasn’t too bad. I had a cough and a little bit of shortness of breath … But now I would say I feel good, I feel normal. Still can’t work out, I got to wait until I get re-tested.”
It is certainly encouraging to see that Elliott had only seemed to be showing minor symptoms of the virus. Although he is still unable to kickstart his workout regimen, he appears to be on track to avoiding any further setbacks ahead of training camp.
Elliott initially expressed his frustration that his positive test was even revealed in the first place. However, his recent comments indicate that he is now focused on getting back to 100 percent in time for the Cowboys’ 2020 campaign.
While players still have yet to report to the practice facilities this offseason, the Cowboys have welcomed back some essential staff. The NFL recently opted to grant teams some autonomy when it comes to establishing safety guidelines and the maximum capacity of the attendance allowed at training camp.
