LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles Rams center Brian Allen says he tested positive for COVID-19 three weeks ago.

Allen is the first active NFL player to acknowledge testing positive during the coronavirus pandemic.

He is not hospitalized and is “feeling good,” according to a statement issued by the team.

The 24-year-old Allen became the Rams’ starting center last year in his second NFL season.

He played in nine games before missing the rest of the season with a knee injury.
