Broncos’ athlete star Von Miller’s agent confirms news of Miller being diagnosed with COVID-19. His agent spoke with NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and told him that Miller is currently observing self-isolation and is in “good spirits”. 

In a recent interview with Mike Klis of 9News, Denver, Miller spoke of his medical condition and revealed that he already has asthma. He also said that it was his girlfriend who detected the first signs of the infection.

Miller is the second NFL star to have confirmed a coronavirus infection after Rams’ Brian Allen. Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer reported Allen to have contracted the virus about three weeks ago. The NFL star is currently on his way to recovery. 

Last month, Jaguars’ three-time All-Pro lineman from 1995 to 2001, Tony Boselli came forward and confirmed a positive test for COVID-19. 

The NFL has canceled all in-person offseason workouts and has decided to conduct the NFL’ s draft online. Besides the location change, the date remains unchanged; which is next Thursday night. No decision has been made on delaying the 2020 season.  

Miller has scheduled a press release this Friday.
