Publish date:

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

The NFL star confirmed the news to 9NEWS. "It's true. I've just been here in the crib, and I started to get a little cough. 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's crazy,'' Miller continued. "I have to be quarantined here at the house. There's not really any medicine or anything like that. Dr. [Steve] Geraghty told me if my breathing changed -- honestly, I'm still new to this. This is like an hour [since learning I tested positive]. 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."

Miller said he has canceled all of his travel plans and plans to adhere to the state's stay-at-home order.

"Everybody is going through the same thing. It's a tough time," Miller said. "It's a crazy time that my mom, my grandmother didn't experience, and we're experiencing it. Just trying to stay the best, stay positive. Everything I need to do, I can do here at the house."
