• Ezekiel Elliott says the Dallas Cowboys "won't do anything dumb" in the midst of the Coronavirus scare
  • Elliott is excited to play with current Cowboys squad as he called the group "the most talented team" he has been on
  • The Cowboys will start their campaign in the new NFL season on Sept. 13 against the Los Angeles Rams

The Dallas Cowboys are not taking chances to make sure that all team members will not be exposed to the Coronavirus as they look forward to proceeding with their season as smoothly as possible, star running back Ezekiel Elliott said.

"You don't wanna miss games because you got COVID," said Elliot, per TMZ Sports, after he himself tested positive for COVID-19 this past offseason. "So, I mean we all are here to play football. We're not gonna do anything dumb to jeopardize that."

The 25-year-old is back at full strength after battling against the disease, and now he is promoting responsibility among players with the NFL set to begin its season on Sept. 10.

"So, I mean just staying safe and it's really not about you, it's about the guy next to you. You don't wanna get that guy sick. You don't wanna have him going home to his family and get it. It's more of an accountability thing, just keeping each other accountable," the two-time rushing champ added.

Elliott could not wait to be back in action with the rest of the Cowboys as he described the current group as the most stacked he has ever been on.

“This is probably the most talented team I’ve been on,” Elliott said, via “Just look at the depth chart, look at the roster, look at how many Pro Bowlers, how many All-Pro guys we have out there. And I mean I think it’s the best.”

Dallas upgraded its roster with the acquisitions of former Pro Bowlers Everson Griffen and Aldon Smith, Dontari Poe, as well top rookie CeeDee Lamb.

“I think we’re looking great. I think we’re in a good spot,” Elliott added “Defensively, we’re so deep on the defensive line, then we have the great linebacker trio and with the good DBs and the offense, we’ve got the veteran O-Line. Those guys, they’re good every year and there are so many weapons on the outside with Dak leading us. I think we’re at a good point right now. Excited and I’m ready to get this thing rolling.”

The Cowboys capped their training camp on Monday as the final cuts are set for Saturday. They will then begin their season against the Los Angeles Rams on the 13th.
