“Due to federal and local privacy laws, we are unable to provide information regarding the personal health of any of our employees,” the Cowboys said in a statement, according to Rapoport.
Per the report, Elliott’s agent Rocky Arceneaux said the running back is currently feeling “good.”
The sports world was put on hold in mid-March when outbreaks of COVID-19 surfaced across the nation. However, the NFL — and college football — has been planning to have a season in 2020 and proceed as scheduled.
Rapoport did not name anyone else in his report.
