In less than 24 hours, there is another player, who has been tested positive for the coronavirus. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport broke the news on Thursday afternoon that Denver Broncos defensive end Von Miller has the infectious virus.
Miller’s news comes on the heels that Los Angeles Rams center Brian Allen tested positive for the coronavirus. However, he has been cleared of the virus, as of Thursday.
Fox Sports’ NFL Insider Jay Glazer broke the news on Wednesday night that Allen had the coronavirus. He has since been criticized for having breaking news, as a breaking news reporter, then holding onto it to draw up ratings for the FS1 show.
Before this positive test for Miller, the Denver Post reported that star player was practicing in San Francisco, California, before the “stay-at-home” guidelines were put in place around the country. He then went back to his residence in the Denver, Colorado area.
While he is the second NFL player to be tested positive for the coronavirus, he is the fourth Denver-area pro athlete to have had the virus. Three members of the Colorado Avalanche — who still have not been identified — tested positive for the virus in March.
Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert’s positive test shut down the sports world in the United States in the middle of March. Gobert’s positive test came back right before tip off as they were supposed to face the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Since then, the American sports world has gone on a hiatus. The fear of the mainstream media has blown the virus out of control, as it may turn out to be not as worse as people have said.
It was surprising that it took nearly a month for an NFL player to get the virus. There are more NFL players on teams than any other team, except college football, which is on a break until September — if they are able to start back up again on time.
