As the coronavirus outbreak continues to spread across the United States, more and more current and former professional athletes have been contracting the virus. Former Jacksonville Jaguars offensive lineman Tony Boselli is among them, and he was reportedly in serious condition at one point.

According to Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman, Boselli was admitted to a Jacksonville-area hospital last week and tested positive for COVID-19. The former Pro Bowler was initially treated in the intensive care unit but has been showing signs of improvement.

Freeman said he decided to report on Boselli’s case after “extensive thought and deliberation,” as he believes it will help save lives by drawing more attention to the pandemic. The reporter added that there have been several other current and former NFL players who have tested positive for the coronavirus.

Boselli, 47, played for the Jaguars from 1995-2001. He was named a Pro Bowler five times and a First-Team All-Pro three times during that span.

The NFL is determined to not allow the coronavirus outbreak to impact its offseason schedule, but many around the league believe that is bound to change in the coming weeks.
