Ezekiel Elliott Tests Positive for Coronavirus

Ezekiel Elliott, the star running back for the Dallas Cowboys, has tested positive for coronavirus, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media:

Earlier, Rapoport reported that “several” Cowboys players and “several” Houston Texans players have tested positive, and shared a previous quote from a league medical specialist about expectations for these types of circumstances:

We are undoubtedly going to see a lot of positive tests in pro and college sports over the next several months, and we’ll have to observe the protocols for how long players are out of action.
