ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Outside linebacker Von Miller has tested positive for COVID-19.
Miller is the first member of the Broncos' organization to test positive for the novel coronavirus, and he is the second active NFL player to announce a positive diagnosis.
"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.
"Von is the first member of the Broncos' organization known to have tested positive for COVID-19."
Rams offensive lineman Brian Allen, the first active player to test positive, confirmed his diagnosis on Wednesday. Saints head coach Sean Payton previously tested positive for the virus and has recovered.
