Ohio State football: Former Buckeye Ezekiel Elliott not happy about COVID-19 reveal

The former Ohio State running back was revealed to have tested positive for COVID-19, and he is not happy that it was leaked.

Ezekiel Elliott was one of the key cogs of the 2014 national championship Ohio State football team. He was one of the best running backs in Buckeye history and was taken with the fourth overall pick by the Cowboys back in the 2016 NFL Draft. He’s been very good in the NFL as well.

Today, Zeke is not a very happy guy. It was leaked to the media that the former Buckeye, along with several other Cowboys and Houston Texan players, have tested positive for COVID-19. Elliott is furious that the media somehow found out about it and let his anger show on Twitter.

Elliott was also very clear that it wasn’t his agent that leaked his positive test to the masses.

It seems that someone within Elliott’s camp released some private medical information that the Ohio State product did not want public. It makes sense that he didn’t want people to know that diagnoses with how everyone is treating the disease in the middle of this pandemic.

Elliott does seem to be feeling well, so it shouldn’t affect his ability to play this upcoming season. He will spend his two weeks in quarantine and hopefully get rid of the virus without any issues. It may only affect his ability to get into the team facility for offseason workouts.

While he is a former Buckeye, current Buckeyes should watch this situation closely. How the Cowboys handle this might be similar to how the university handles it if a player were to contract the virus.

This is a new situation for everyone, so it will be interesting to see how leagues and college programs handle positive tests.
