Dak Prescott issues statement defending gathering at home
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is pushing back against reports that he violated social distancing guidelines by hosting a party at his home.
Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott were present at a reported party for a friend’s birthday that witnesses said had over 30 people present, well over the recommended limit of ten people per gathering. Prescott, however, characterized the gathering as a “home dinner” with fewer than ten people present in a statement defending his actions.

Prescott and Elliott were chastised by management for their actions, so it’s clear that the organization isn’t happy no matter what happened.
Prescott is clearly disputing the reported version of events. Given the health situation nationally and the expectations placed on pro athletes like Prescott, though, he’d probably be better off avoiding gatherings like this even if he’s telling the truth about fewer than ten people being present. It’s just not a good look for him or anyone associated with it.
