Report: Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence has the coronavirus

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

According to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport, Clemson Tigers quarterback Trevor Lawrence has tested positive for the coronavirus. It’s not clear when Lawrence may have gotten the virus.

Lawrence was expected to lead the top-ranked Tigers onto the field on Saturday against the Boston College Eagles. However, with this positive diagnosis, he will likely miss the game.

“Trevor has authorized us this evening to announce that he has tested positive for COVID-19 and is now in isolation,” Tigers head coach Dabo Swinney said. “He is doing well with mild symptoms but will not be available for this week’s game against Boston College. While we certainly will miss Trevor, this is an opportunity for other guys to step up and we’re excited about competing against a very good BC team on Saturday. Go Tigers.”

Lawrence is the highest profile player in college. He is the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy.

Right now, Lawrence is in isolation. Atlantic Coast Conference protocol says that Lawrence has to isolate for at least 10 days before returning to practice.

This, of course, if there are no more symptoms, if Lawrence is dealing with any at this time. Some people, who have tested positive for the virus, did not experience any symptoms.

This season, Lawrence – who is expected to be the top pick in the 2021 NFL Draft – has gone 135 of 191 for 1,833 yards with 17 touchdowns and two interceptions.

In his last game, Lawrence went 27 of 43 for 289 yards. He had two touchdown passes and one interception in a 47-21 win over the Syracuse Orange.
