Chargers Coach Anthony Lynn Confirms COVID-19

Last night on HBO was the season premiere of Hard Knocks which features the Los Angeles Chargers.  Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn was addressing his team on a Zoom call and said, "This year is not like any year we've ever had in the National Football League.  I can't promise you you're not gonna get infected. I got infected."

This shocked his team and he had not told anybody previous to this episode airing.  Anthony Lynn is the third NFL coach to confirm a positive coronavirus test joining Saints coach Sean Payton and Eagles coach Doug Pederson. 

Anthony Lynn said he got tested after watching a PGA Tour event where a golfer withdrew due to body aches and a positive COVID-19 test.

"I said, ‘S---, my body kinda feels like that. If I hadn’t been watching that golf event and saw that golfer complain about back aches and soreness, I never would’ve even gotten tested and I would’ve had this and never even known it and, s---, probably would’ve got people infected."


Anthony Lynn has been added to the NFL Football Positive List for COVID-19. Visit that link to see all NFL players that have tested positive or have been added to the Reserve/COVID-19 list to date.
