Raiders’ defensive lineman Clelin Ferrell could see the trends and knew he had to be prepared.
The way COVID-19 was spreading and impacting NFL locker rooms, the second-year pro from Clemson believed there was a good chance he could be infected at some point.
So he readied himself mentally for what should happen if he did get it.
“It gave me peace throughout the season,” said Ferrell, who has missed the last two games after testing positive. “So when I did, yes it was a bummer, but I was prepared to the point where it wouldn’t crush me mentally.”
