Maxx Crosby may be away from his teammates while he deals with the coronavirus but the second-year defensive end is still in close communication with at least one of his teammates.
Fellow second-year defensive end Clelin Ferrell told reporters on Thursday that Crosby is doing well and that the two talk daily. Ferrell noted that Crosby is trying to do as much work, in a nontraditional way, as he can while at quarantining at home.
“Oh yeah, we talk every day. That’s my boy, that’s probably my best friend on the team. We talk every day,” Ferrell said in quotes distributed by the team. “He’s doing good. He’s at home playing with the dogs or he’s got a little palm tree out there that he’s slapping on. He doesn’t have any bags in the house, he doesn’t have a whole lot of workout gear, so he’s been doing good. He’s just waiting his turn for when they tell him to come back in.”
Crosby, along with reserve running back Rod Smith, have been on the reserve/COVID-19 list since Aug. 6.
