    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    A bubble would be great, but that’s one huge bubble.
