Zach Wilson’s teammates were still buzzing a few days after the New York Jets quarterback's NFL debut. “He’s a tough dude,” wide receiver Corey Davis said. Wilson was 20 of 37 for 258 yards and two touchdowns to Davis, both in the second half, along with an interception in New York's 19-14 loss at Carolina last Sunday.
Carolina Panthers offensive lineman John Miller spent last Sunday watching his team’s season opener against the New York Jets from his bed, still recovering from COVID-19 symptoms. The 6-foot-3, 315-pound Miller said he was “pretty bad” with congestion, fatigue and diarrhea for about four days, but gradually started to feel better. “I did a little conditioning, and I was like, ‘wow, my lung capacity is not what it used to be,’” Miller said.
