NFL quarterback Kurt Warner has tested positive for COVID-19, according to an announcement on social media.

He tweeted the news Friday evening.

Warner Announces COVID-19 Positive

“I’m so excited about the NFLs 1st “Super WildCard Weekend”… but at the same time bummed I won’t be in studio w/ my guys on @NFLGameday Morning bc I have recently tested positive for Covid… I’m doing well, going through protocols & hope to be back in studio next weekend!”

One fan of Warner asked if he would be on from a remote location. Warner replied, “May want to stay tuned tomorrow!! Yes I will be doing show from home!!”

It appears that Warner is doing well and anticipates being back to his normal life in no time.

The NFL has seen a massive number in positive cases during the season. This includes players like Stephon Gilmore, Bill Murray, Isaiah Wilson, Cam Newton, Jordan Ta’amu, A.J. Terrell, and many more.

Warner’s Football Legacy

Warner got his start in the football industry as a quarterback for the St. Louis Rams, the New York Giants, and the Arizona Cardinals. The Green Bay Packers signed him as a free agent. Now he’s considered the best undrafted NFL player ever.

Kurt Warner was in both the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the Arena Football Hall of Fame.

Warner won the Super Bowl XLIII in 2008 with the Cardinals. He holds high rankings in career passing rates and completion percentages. After 12 years of success, the quarterback joined the NFL Network as an analyst in 2010. He is now the lead color analyst for Monday Night Football and the Super Bowl.

Warner as a Charitable Figure

According to Sportscasting, Warner made $62.7 million during his time in the NFL. He is a devoted Christian who has often brought up his faith. He used his money to help his son Zack who is legally blind.

Warner’s family built a house in Phoenix, named the Treasure House, where Zack and others in similar situations could live freely and independently.

His wife of over 20 years, Brenda Warner, thinks that this move is and should be their true lasting legacy. “I think that this will be our legacy more than a Hall of Fame.”

Brenda was a United States Marine Corps corporal. She had Zachary and Jesse Jo with her ex-husband. However, she was discharged after her ex dropped Zack, leaving him with brain damage and blindness.
