Multiple Cowboys and Houston Texans players are said to have tested positive for COVID-19 recently, though both teams followed proper health protocols and none of the players were inside the teams’ facilities at any point.
The NFL knew that it would be impossible to avoid positive coronavirus tests both before and during the season, which is why health and safety guidelines are in place for dealing with them. The key to being able to have a 2020 season will be identifying the cases early enough and isolating players or staff who test positive.
A few high-profile NBA players tested positive for COVID-19 a while back, and Elliott and Von Miller are the most prominent NFL players to date to have contracted the virus. Fortunately, it does not sound like he has experienced any complications.
