Former Titans star Eddie George is among those personally touched by the COVID-19 pandemic in America.

George revealed Tuesday his father, Edward George Sr., is battling the virus, “Actually my father has COVID-19”.

His father is 70-years old and hospitalized at assisted living facility in Philadelphia, but so far George says the news is OK, “We’ll see. He should be OK, he has some underlying medical issues. I haven’t heard anything, so no news is good news.”

George said his father was diagnosed a week ago and the rest of his family is healthy.
