ESPN provides update on Todd McShay

  ESPN provides update on Todd McShay McShay was assigned to work as a reporter for the network’s coverage of the Wisconsin-Northwestern game last weekend. However, he sounded terrible and did not look well when providing a pregame report. He later left the game due to illness. On Tuesday, ESPN shared a statement about McShay.“Todd McShay is recovering after feeling ill during Saturday’s game. He’s currently planning to work his game assignment this weekend,” they said.That is very good news, because McShay did not look well when providing the report.McShay, 43, missed out on covering the NFL Draft in April because he was ill with COVID-19.

Todd McShay announced hours before the draft he would not be a part of it after contracting the disease. ESPN' s Todd McShay describes 'dark' place during COVID-19 hospital stay. Just sending a text or appearing on TV was exhausting and he said he slept through scheduled TV hits.

ABC’s coverage of Wisconsin-Northwestern Saturday saw something unusual, with field analyst Todd McShay (working the game alongside Sean McDonough, Todd Blackledge and Molly McGrath) leaving the broadcast partway through. In the second half, McDonough said that McShay had left the broadcast due to illness. But even McShay’s on-air hit opening the broadcast seemed off:

No. 19 Northwestern went on to beat No. 10 Wisconsin 17-7, a notable result. And that marked the first time the Wildcats had beaten an AP Top 10 opponent by 10 or more points since 1959. But the situation with McShay was certainly odd for those watching on TV.

McShay already faced one notable health situation this year, missing ESPN’s NFL draft coverage in April while he was recovering from COVID-19. We don’t yet know anything about what happened to him Saturday, but we’ll update this post if we receive more information on that.
