Did Terry McLaurin catch the coronavirus?
McLaurin is one of the few players on the Commanders' squad that didn’t test positive for coronavirus, per Sharp Football Analysis. However, the Washington receiver did speak with NBC Sports Washington last August about taking the COVID-19 vaccine and respecting his teammate’s decision to either be vaccinated or unvaccinated.
“If you don’t decide to get the vaccine, then you’ve got to make sure you’re doing whatever you can to protect yourself and to protect all of us, because we’re all in this together,” McLaurin said. “This could really affect the season that we have ahead.”
