Men having trouble looking at ESPN cover star's nude picture

Earlier this week, ESPN debuted the 2017 cover stars for its Body Issue, NFL running back Ezekiel "Zeke" Elliott and Danish tennis champion Caroline Wozniacki.

The magazine posted the first look at the cover debuts on it's official Twitter account.

The Dallas Cowboys player was featured in the magazine's ninth annual Body Issue, which "celebrates and showcases the athletic form" and is set for public distribution on July 7. Elliott, who scored 15 touchdowns and rushed for 1,631 yards last season as a rookie, made the cover page of the issue.
