The spread of coronavirus has now made a drastic impact on sports in the United States, the general public, and the rest of the world.
Unfortunately, it has left one former NFL player with a family member who is in critical condition.
ESPN’s Jenna Laine reported on Thursday that former Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Michael Pittman has a family member who tested positive for the coronavirus and has been in coma since last Thursday.
“He said they need a miracle,” Laine wrote. “So if you believe in prayer, please join me in praying for Michael Pittman and his family, while also respecting his and his family’s privacy. They need all the healing vibes they can get. He also wanted me to post this to increase awareness about the dangers of coronavirus.”
Pittman played 10 seasons in the NFL, suiting up for the Cardinals, Broncos, and Buccaneers. He would experience ultimate success when he won a Super Bowl with Tampa.
