Coronavirus: Broncos star Miller says he's been cleared of COVID-19
- After testing positive for coronavirus in April, Von Miller is free of COVID-19.
Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller revealed he has been cleared of coronavirus, two weeks after contracting COVID-19.
Miller – an NFL Super Bowl MVP and eight-time Pro Bowler – was among the highest profile American athletes to test positive for coronavirus on April 16.
However, the Broncos star used Twitter to announce he is coronavirus-free on Thursday.
Miller tweeted, "Got my results back. I'm 'negative' for COVID-19".
Got my results back. Im “negative” for Covid-19— Von Miller (@VonMiller) May 1, 2020
The 31-year-old told KUSA-TV in Denver last month that he began coughing about six days before making the announcement and went for a test after consulting with the Broncos medical team.
Recently a unanimous pick to the NFL's All-Decade team of the 2010s, Miller was the second active player to acknowledge testing positive.
Los Angeles Rams center Brian Allen was the first player after New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton revealed in March that he tested positive for COVID-19.
