Ezekiel Elliott isn't having the best month.

He recently confirming that he tested positive for COVID-19, but thankfully is feeling generally okay, saying, "I would say I had one or two days where I felt symptoms, and even then it wasn't too bad. I had a cough and a little bit of shortness of breath. But now I would say I feel good, I feel normal."

Just a few weeks later after confirming his positive test, Zeke found himself in the middle of a little bit of controversy again.

Elliott has threatened a lawsuit against "Sports Illustrated" after the magazine ran an article that he had admitted he was high during a live stream of the Cowboys running back playing a video game.

In a since deleted tweet, Elliott explains that "faded" refers to the couple of drinks he had during the stream, and not to any illicit narcotics. Furthermore, he threatened a lawsuit against the publication for defamation, saying that they would be speaking with his attorneys soon.

Elliott is also currently being sued for more than $200,000 by a woman who claimed his dogs violently attacked her while she cleaned his pool in March. He has denied any wrongdoing.
