NFL News is tracking every single one of the new coronaviruses plaguing the world and is watching it closely.
This week, we’re bringing you the story of a young man who was diagnosed with the new virus and how he fought back.
Here are three reasons why the NFL may want to catch a glimpse of “Cox” and why he deserves the chance to do so.1.
He’s young, he’s brave, and he’s a hero2.
He’s a big deal3.
He could end up being the first NFL player to get sickThe first-ever NFL player who contracted a coronaviral disease, Cox, is a big part of the NFL’s effort to educate and empower people around the world to fight the pandemic.
In a new film called “Coveted,” Cox, who played quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals, was diagnosed last week and is currently recovering at home.
He recently underwent surgery and is recovering.
“The NFL is going to be watching him closely, and I think that’s going to motivate him and motivate the players and inspire the community to work even harder to make this happen,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said at a press conference last week.
Cox was diagnosed at age 26 with the coronavirochymosis virus, which can lead to life-threatening and sometimes deadly illness.
He played in five NFL seasons before retiring in 2010.
He went on to play for the Oakland Raiders and the Carolina Panthers, winning Super Bowl MVP honors for the latter in 2013.
After he left football, Cox became a public health advocate, launching a foundation to educate people on the dangers of coronavireal diseases and the dangers facing people who live in communities where they live.
“This disease is not a joke.
It’s not a matter of the environment.
It is a matter that impacts people every single day,” Cox said in a statement on his foundation.
“And it is our responsibility to make sure that every one of us can live in a safe, healthy environment where we can be at peace with each other and our families.
It can happen in our homes, in our workplaces, and even on our streets.”
Cox played on the sidelines for the Bengals in 2014 and 2016, but was in the midst of a serious illness.
On Nov. 6, 2016, the day he was diagnosed, Cox played in a game in Indianapolis against the Colts.
At the time, he was a member of the Bengals’ training staff, but the team had to make a change because of a flu-related illness.
During the game, Cox went to the locker room and found himself covered in sweat.
He got checked out and then went back to the field.
He was hospitalized for four days and later died on Dec. 2, 2016.
During a speech delivered before the Bengals game, Goodell said the team was “in disbelief” by Cox’s death.
“We lost a friend.
And that friend was one of our teammates, one of ours, and we are truly saddened by his passing,” Goodell said.
“Cincinnati Bengals will always be a city of love and brotherhood, and this loss is especially devastating to the Bengals organization and the entire city of Cincinnati.”
In a statement released by the Bengals, Cox’s family thanked the team for keeping him in their thoughts and prayers.
“It is truly a sad day for our family, our friends and our city.
Our thoughts and our prayers go out to the Cox family, who are in mourning, as they mourn their beloved son, brother and friend,” the statement read.”
Cox will always remain a member and member of our family.
We will all miss him.”1.
He had a big role to playThis could be his biggest role in all of this.
As part of a recent study conducted by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), a group of coronovirus experts, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released data showing that NFL players had the highest rate of death from coronaviolosis among all players.
In other words, players who have played in the NFL are the most likely to die from the virus.
“One of the things that we’re doing now is taking this virus into a wider perspective,” NIAID director Dr. Gregory Hart said.
The group studied data from the National Football League from 2007 to 2015.
In that time period, the number of deaths from the coronoviral disease was 5,922.
During that same time period from 2007-2015, the NIAIDs report showed the death rate for NFL players was nearly 13 times higher than that of the general population.
“If we look at the mortality rates in the general public, we are at almost 15 times the death rates in football,” Hart said in an interview with The Associated Press.
“That’s why we’re seeing an uptick in coronavillosis.”
