Von Miller Tests Positive For Coronavirus

47

Denver Broncos All-Pro linebacker Von Miller has tested positive for the coronavirus.

“I was shocked,” Miller said last week on NBC’s “Today” show via The New York Times. “It all started with just a simple cough and it got worse. I also have asthma.”

Miller, 31, was training in San Francisco before the city issued a stay at home order. He returned to his home in Denver approximately one month ago. In the interview, Miller noted he had probably only left his house about four times during that time period.

Miller is the second NFL player to test positive for the virus, as Los Angeles Ram center Brian Allen was the first NFL player to publicly acknowledge he tested positive.
