Allen, who plays for the L.A. Rams now, is the first known NFL player to test positive for the coronavirus. According to NFL.com, he tested positive three weeks ago. Rams head coach Sean McVay says Allen is recovering well. Last November Allen suffered a knee injury that forced him to miss the rest of the season. When Allen found out he had tested positive, he had been re-habbing at the Rams' training facilities, so they had to completely shut everything down at the facility. They plan to open back up for re-habbing players, next week.

Allen played at center and guard for the Spartans and started all 13 games at center in his senior year in 2017. He was drafted by the Rams in the 4th round of the NFL draft in 2018.
