2. Ezekiel Elliot

Dallas Cowboys running back Elliot feels normal after his recovery. His symptoms were not as serious as those of other victims. However, he did have shortness of breath and a cough for a few days. After 10 days he was back to feeling relatively normal.

Elliot does have concerns about player safety because he feels the NFL is not taking the disease seriously enough. The three-time Pro Bowler says that it goes deeper than just the athletes because many of their families are vulnerable. Furthermore, so are many coaches. It’s a complicated situation.

1. Kevin Durant

By far the most famous basketball player to get sick, Durant has also recovered. The Brooklyn Nets star was one of three players on the team who tested positive for the illness. First of all, Durant couldn’t believe it because he didn’t have any of the symptoms.

Then it was a matter of trying to get as fit and healthy as possible. In short, he believes that we all have to do our bit to ensure that society remains safe. But he doesn’t need to worry about infecting other players because he won’t play again this season anyway due to a serious Achilles injury.
