Ryan Switzer – who last played in the NFL with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2019 – has had to take his son Christian to the hospital. Switzer said that Christian is 9 months old.
Switzer said that the issue began when Christian woke up in his own blood. The wide receiver also said that his son also tested positive for the coronavirus.
“I’m asking everyone that this tweet comes across to please just take a second and say a prayer for our son Christian,” Switzer said on Twitter. “He’s 9 months and currently in the hospital after he woke up in his blood. He’s COVID positive.”
