Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Dak Prescott has come under heavy criticism lately over a weekend gathering at his home that seemed, to many, to violate guidelines regarding the coronavirus pandemic, and is now responding to the backlash.
“I think they’re certainly aware now of how sensitive these situations are,” Cowboys’ executive vice president Stephen Jones said Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, according to ESPN’s Todd Archer. “I don’t think you’ll be seeing that anymore. They’re certainly guys we have the utmost respect for, and I certainly know they understand the sensitivity of the situation we’re in today. It’s certainly very serious and something that we know and certainly know they understand.”
Prescott spoke about it on Tuesday night.
“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,” he 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.”
Prosper, Texas police were called to Prescott’s house but were unable to verify whether there were more than 10 people at the residence, which would have been a clear violation of the guidelines.
“I am very sensitive to the challenges we are all facing and making sure to support the first responders and medical personnel and everyone else putting in long hours. We are all at a time when we need to keep educating ourselves about the importance of health and isolation during this pandemic and I will continue to make sure to do my part by following the guidelines until we are approved to start returning to normal activities.”
Cowboys’ running back Ezekiel Elliott was also in attendance at the gathering at Prescott’s home.
