Media star and Pro Football Hall of Famer Michael Strahan is the latest sports celebrity to test positive for the COVID-19 virus.
The former New York Giants defensive end began isolating on Saturday when he found out he had been exposed to the virus, according to TMZ.
Strahan, who is a co-host of Good Morning America has been absent from the show this week.
Robin Roberts, another co-host of GMA, confirmed reports that Strahan had missed the show this week because “he has tested positive for COVID.” She added that “he’s at home quarantining right now.”
Fellow GMA co-host George Stephanopoulos said Strahan is “feeling well and looking forward to being back here shortly.”
Strahan did make a remote appearance on Fox NFL Sunday during the NFC Championship coverage between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Green Bay Packers.
The 49-year-old said he is not experiencing any severe symptoms from the COVID-19 virus.
The Hall of Famer played his entire career with the New York Giants, recording 141.5 sacks, including 22.5 sacks in the 2001 season, which remains the NFL record for one season.
