Ezekiel Elliott was not high on a recent live stream, despite what people initially thought.
It hasn’t been the best of months for Ezekiel Elliott. While he’s no stranger to offseason headlines, the star Dallas Cowboys running back has tested positive for the coronavirus, and is being sued for millions after his pool cleaner claimed his dogs attacked her.
The rough stretch for Zeke seemed like it was continuing on Monday, when the former Ohio State star was on a live stream, but forgot to end things. An initial knee-jerk assumption after watching the video was that on top of everything else going on in his life, he had just let the entire world know he was high.
“Oh Bro I’m low key faded bro,” Zeke is hear in the video saying to his viewers. “Oh no, I didn’t even end my stream yet.”
Not so fast, though.
Ezekiel Elliott wasn’t high on his Twitch stream, that’s not what ‘faded’ means
His comments were taken by some to mean that he was high. This, however, doesn’t at all seem to be the case.
Zeke took to Twitter to clear the air, so to speak.
As for how he’s feeling with the season approaching, there’s nothing faded about what he’ll be bringing to the field.
Last week, Elliott said he was feeling good, but had to wait a little bit longer to work out and prepare for the upcoming football season. The Cowboys will need him if they want to try and go on another deep run in the playoffs. Dak Prescott’s contract drama seems to be subsiding for at least the time being, and new head coach Mike McCarthy is attempting to prove he can create a winner without Aaron Rodgers.
Still, though, maybe next time turn the computer off and do so a little more quietly.
