Denver Broncos’ LB Von Miller Tests Positive For Coronavirus

Denver Broncos’ star linebacker Von Miller has tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19) after a statement was released on the team’s website Thursday night regarding his condition.

“After experiencing flu-like symptoms, Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller has tested positive for COVID-19,” the Broncos’ statement said. “Von has elected to share his diagnosis publicly to emphasize that anyone can be afflicted with coronavirus. Von is doing well and recovering at home in self-isolation. He remains under the care of team doctors, who are following all coronavirus treatment procedures to ensure a safe environment for Von and our community. Von is the first member of the Broncos’ organization known to have tested positive for COVID-19.”

Miller made an appearance on the “TODAY” show Friday morning via video chat from his Colorado home to discuss his experience thus far. “It all started with just a simple cough and it got worse,” Miller claimed.

Another abnormality that his girlfriend noticed was his voice sounding different. Miller has asthma so he tried using his nebulizer “but it really didn’t work like it should.”

“And my assistant said, ‘Why don’t you just get tested?'” Miller said. On Thursday, Miller received his test results and said he “was shocked.” He went to on explain that he has been taking precautions “since day one” and didn’t expect to actually contract the disease. He had previously been training in San Francisco but returned to Denver amid the bay area’s stay-at-home order. During the month spent in his Denver home, Miller said he only left the house four times but had maids and plumbers over a few times as well.

When asked about playing NFL games behind closed doors in the fall, Miller responded, “Whatever’s safe … Whatever we have to do to get things back to normal, that’s what we have to do. We shouldn’t move too fast.”

Miller is an eight-time Pro Bowler and has recorded 490 tackles and 106 sacks in his nine years with the Broncos.
