Terrell Lewis provides COVID-19 update after ‘Hard Knocks’ reveal
Los Angeles Rams rookie Terrell Lewis is fine.
There have been recent questions surrounding the health of the new Rams linebacker and whether he would be fit to play in the 2020 NFL season. Lewis was initially placed by the team in their COVID-19/Reserve list, though LA neither confirmed nor denied if he had the virus.
However, earlier on Tuesday in the season premier of HBO’s “Hard Knocks” which featured the Rams, it was finally confirmed that the 21-year old did test positive for the coronavirus.
Now, the Alabama alum has come out on Twitter to clear the air and reveal that he has fully recovered from the dreaded disease. He also hinted that he’ll be back on the field in no time.
I’m back in action and I’m good now… chill💀😂

The rookie was poised to compete for a starting role as an outside linebacker for the Rams before being placed on the team’s reserve list on July 31 alongside fellow freshman Michael Hoecht. Hoecht was immediately activated by the team a few days after, as head coach Sean McVay said that he was already symptom-free.
Unfortunately, no such updates were given on Terrell Lewis’ status as he remains on the team’s reserve list.
To date, Lewis is the just the third Rams player to contract the coronavirus. Offensive linemen Andrew Whitworth and Brian Allen reportedly also tested positive of COVID-19 during the offseason. Though there are still questions on whether or not the rookie will be cleared to play and join the team’s training camp, it’s definitely great to hear that he’s doing okay now.
