One of the game’s best pass rushers and a former Super Bowl Most Valuable Player, Denver Broncos defensive end Von Miller has a confirmed case of COVID-19, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday, per Miller’s agents.

Miller is expected to speak publicly Friday and the Broncos are aware of the situation, Rapoport added.
