Odell Beckham Jnr Can't Catch COVID-19 Because He And The Virus Have A 'Mutual Respect'

So when the Cleveland Browns wide receiver was forced to miss two days of practice after suffering from flu-like symptoms, everyone expected the worst.

The coronavirus pandemic has continued to plague live sports events around the globe and with the revamped NFL season only just kicking off, competition officials are keeping a close eye on the teams to ensure everyone is COVID-free.

"Not in an arrogant way, I just don't think COVID can get to me," OBJ said ahead of Cleveland's Week 7 local derby against the Cincinnati Bengals.

"I don't think it's going to get into this body. I don't want no parts of it, it don't want no parts of me. It's a mutual respect.

"So I wasn't really worried about the test, it was just more in my mind for me and my maturity level I felt like it was the right thing to do to mention I may not have been feeling well.

"I just wouldn't want it to spread throughout the whole building, if there was a case that I would have possibly had it. I was just trying to be an adult and be precautious about the situation and try and handle it the right way."
