Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott reportedly held a party at his house in Prosper, Texas that included 30+ people with teammate Ezekiel Elliot in attendance. This created a huge problem as Texas is taking part in social distancing along with other states as they fight against CoronaVirus. Once news broke out about the gathering the Cowboys organization was not happy about this and said they would talk to both Elliot and Prescott.
“I think they’re certainly aware now of how sensitive these situations are,” said Cowboys CEO Stephen Jones Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. “I don’t think you’ll be seeing that anymore.”
Prosper police were called to the party but were unable to verify if there were indeed more than 10 people at the party. If there were more than 10 people in attendance that would be in violation of CDC’s social distancing guidelines as they were enforced during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Prescott would later go on to defend himself later that Tuesday as he began to grow frustrated with the media coverage of the gathering and claims there were less than 10 people in attendance not for a party but for a dinner.
“I understand and accept that there are additional responsibilities and media scrutiny that come with being an NFL quarterback, but it is very frustrating and disappointing when people provide completely inaccurate information from anonymous sources, especially now,” Prescott said in the statement. “To set the record straight I know that we all need to do our best to socially distance and like everyone else, I am continuing to adjust to what that requires, but the truth is that I was with fewer than 10 people for a home dinner not a party on Friday night.
