Yeah, I know, who?
I actually wanted him to make the team. It stinks that he has this. God speed and best wishes to him.
No one, worst enemy or otherwise, deserves this.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe this definitely means he tested positive... He may have just been around someone who did or was showing symptoms.
I'm sorry to have to tell you guys this, but I just got the test results back. I have been diagnosed with...
Being as azzhole. Apparently there is no cure so I have embraced the diagnosis.
Add Layne to the list. Still not clear if these guys actually have Covid.
Yeah but we already knew this
Not good for Justin Layne.... AT ALL. It is likely now that, pending on his recovery, Pittsburgh is likely to spend a high draft pick on a Cornerback again. I do not think the team elects to keep Joe Haden for 2021 and beyond given his cap hit.
Here comes my fan club. You go girl!
It might be a case where he was exposed to covid but didn't contract it, or someone close to him contracted it, so he has to quarantine for now. Hopefully.
So if a player gets Covid they are out for the year?
No, they’re not. There no set time, but it would be like any other situation where someone gets clearance to return to work after a quarantine period, or a negative test or something else.
I would tend to agree. Although going from being sick to getting back on the field as a world class athlete seems a little harder than going back to a desk to get on conference calls. Depending on severity of the virus, could be much longer than a couple of weeks.
Yep. It certainly depends on how sick they get
I sure hope so!
I wonder about athletes who get sick and suffer long term lung damage. You would think not having the oxygen capacity to play football would pretty much kill their season.
My brother had it couple months ago, still gets winded fairly easily. He’s in good shape too.
It effects people differently, still a lot to be learned about this thing and it’s long term damage.
Tomlin talks about keeping the team healthy. One fail all fail is what he is preaching. Basically, selfish behavior will put everyone else at risk.
He knows a thing or two about selfish behavior.
The Buffalo Bills sent their rookies home from the team's facility Thursday as a response to five positive coronavirus tests this week, the team told ESPN in a statement. A league source told ESPN that two players, including one rookie, tested positive for COVID-19, and the team made the decision to conduct the day's meetings virtually.
Ok, these players including baseball players are not taking precautions. No way. These idiots are going out clubbing and **** like that.
They are kids. They don’t think long term.
A league of their own.
I'm telling you they need to be in a bubble.
Bubble 2020 keep football great.
Bubble? Like bubble boy?
A bubble would be great, but that’s one huge bubble.
