Good Morning America host and NFL legend Michael Strahan has reportedly tested positive for coronavirus.

The former New York Giants standout has been absent from his usual place on GMA this week, after appearing remotely for his appearance on FOX NFL Sunday during the NFC title game.

Strahan appeared remotely because he was already in isolation after learning he'd been potentially exposed on Saturday, TMZ reported. The 49-year-old later tested positive, according to the outlet.

The Hall of Famer was set to appear on the show remotely and reveal his situation on Thursday, the report said.

Strahan, who retired after winning Super Bowl XLII with the Giants, transitioned to morning talk shows soon after football, first joining with Kelly Ripa before making the jump to GMA.

Drafted by the Giants in the second round in 1993, Strahan last played in 2007, calling it a career with 141.5 career sacks. The Texas Southern product owns the league record for most sacks in a single season, recording 22.5 in 2001.
