Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has denied throwing a huge party during the coronavirus pandemic.

There had been a report that the young NFL star threw a party last Friday night with more than two dozen people in attendance during the ongoing crisis. However, he’s now denied that ever happened, and said in a statement to ProFootballTalk that he had a dinner with “fewer than 10 people.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Either way, the Cowboys are taking the situation seriously, and have reportedly addressed it with Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott, who was also in attendance.

Team executive Stephen Jones said the following Tuesday during an interview on 105.3 The Fan:

We’ve certainly communicated with Dak and Zeke. I think they’re certainly aware now of how sensitive these situations are and I don’t think you’ll be seeing that anymore. They are certainly guys we 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

What is the truth on the total number of guests? Who knows. What I do know is that a pandemic is no time to be throwing parties or hosting dinners for friends.

Unless it’s a necessity, you probably shouldn’t be having people over at all. Of all people who should understand this, it’s an NFL quarterback.

Does he not want the season to happen? If people continue to spread coronavirus, then the season is being put at risk.

To be clear, nobody is happy about having to isolate from coronavirus. Nobody is happy at all, but we’re all doing our part.

We’re all getting involved in the fight, and we’re all trying to win this war. Whether Prescott truly had fewer than 10 people over doesn’t matter.

It’s the fact he had people over at all that is a shade concerning. As the face of an NFL franchise, he should be taking this more seriously than most.

Let’s hope he’s learned his lesson.
