“I woke up today and still had congestion and a little bit of chills. So I decided to go ahead and get tested,” he told the outlet Wednesday.

Jackson, who participated in a protest in downtown Denver on March 6, said he doesn’t think that’s where he contracted the virus.

“No, the doctor said with the congestion starting two days ago that I would have picked it up this weekend,” he explained. “It definitely wasn’t from the march.”

There has been a spike in cases among NFL players, including Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, but Jackson says that’s not surprising.
