Multiple Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys football players, including Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott, have recently tested positive for COVID-19, NFL.com reports.

The report indicates that none of the players are believed to have been in their team facilities and the Cowboys and Texans teams followed proper health protocols. Among the players, Elliott's agent told the network he had tested positive for coronavirus.

Elliott's agent told Rapoport that the Dallas standout is "feeling good." The team, however, issued a statement that it could not provide information.

"Due to federal and local privacy laws, we are unable to provide information regarding the personal health of any of our employees," the Cowboys' statement said.

Earlier in the pandemic, Denver defensive end and former Texas A&M Aggie Von Miller and Los Angeles Rams center Brian Allen tested positive.
