Denver Broncos’ Von Miller tests positive for COVID-19

Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller has tested positive for COVID-19.

He is the second known NFL player to test positive after Los Angeles center Brian Allen confirmed he was recovering from the virus.

“I’ve just been here in the crib and I started to get a little cough,” said Miller on 9News.

“You know I have asthma and I started getting a little cough a couple days ago. My girlfriend she told me when I was asleep she said my cough it didn’t sound normal.”

“It (my nebulizer) wasn’t working (after several days to address the cough) how I thought it would. My assistant said let’s go get tested. So I got tested, that was two days ago. I started to feel like normal yesterday and then this morning (my doctor) called me and told me.”

“It’s crazy. I have to be quarantined here at the house. There’s not really any medicine or anything like that.

“I’m not sure what’s going on but I tell you what, I’m in good spirits. I’m still Von. I’m not feeling sick or hurting or anything like that.”


In a statement, the Broncos said: “After experiencing flu-like symptoms, Von Miller has tested positive for COVID-19. He 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.”

Agent Joby Branion earlier told USA Today that Miller felt compelled to speak on the topic.
