Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is now firing back at media reports that he had a party at his home that violated social distancing guidelines.
Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott were present at a reported party for a friend’s birthday, with TMZ reporting them having as many as 30 people in attendance, which is well over the recommended limit of ten people per gathering.
Prescott is now firing back at those reports when he sent out a statement that characterized the gathering as a “home dinner” with fewer than ten people.
His anger likely stems also from Cowboys VP Stephen Jones having to speak with both of them about the party.
“We’ve certainly communicated with Dak and Zeke,” Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones said in a recent radio interview. “I think they’re certainly aware now of how sensitive these situations are. I don’t think you’ll be seeing that nay more. They are certainly guys that were have the utmost respect for. I certainly know they understand the sensitivity of the situation we’re in, it’s certainly very serious and something we know they understand.”
Prescott’s representatives also stated that a photo published by TMZ is not from Prescott’s house, but rather from a restaurant that catered the food for his dinner.
Prescott is still hoping for a long-term contract from the team, so he’s seriously putting himself at risk for contracting the disease. It’s just not a good look right now to have any amount of people around you at the moment as the country deals with this health crisis.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
