DENVER (KDVR) — Broncos star Von Miller has tested positive for COVID-19, the team confirmed Thursday afternoon.
The Super Bowl 50 MVP plans to speak publicly Friday.
“After experiencing flu-like symptoms, Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller has tested positive for COVID-19,” the Broncos said in a statement. “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.”
Miller is the second NFL player to test positive for the virus. On Wednesday, Los Angeles Rams player Brian Allen confirmed his diagnosis.
In addition to the Denver Broncos, three players from the Colorado Avalanche have also tested positive for the virus.
