Per mcdermott, related to the Covid situation. He said he was supposed to return this week to practice. Cardiologist wouldn’t clear him   

I'm a cardiologist.  Myocarditis can occur with a wide variety of viruses not just Covid. Remember there are other coronaviruses besides COVID-19 and many other common cold viruses than can cause

This was the reason why the Big 10 was one of the first conferences to say they weren't playing when studies showed that 1/3 of college athletes developed that after COVID.  

 

They agreed to play after developing a plan where players had to wait for a minimum length of time before coming back AND be cleared by a cardiologist as well.

As far as I have heard thus far, he and Ryquell Armstead of the Jaguars are the only two who haven't really bounced back from this like everyone else.

They had to walk back that statement because the Doc was making a guess.  Very few players are having issues

Scary stuff. Apparently this is happening to 15%-19% of recovered athletes. I hope he's going to be ok long term. That pitcher for the Red Sox got it in a real bad way and was told by his doctors not to even walk around his house.

Fortunate that they caught it. Glad that he’s expected back next year. 

 

 

Not much they can do for it.  Just hope for the best.  I wonder what criteria is preventing Cards from clearing him.

Wow!  Well, I guess TE Quest will have to take a pause on hoping for rescue

 

It is a quiet aspect of the NFL's covid-19 protocol that players who test positive for covid-19 must undergo cardiac screening before returning to practice.
