Alshon Jeffery, who is arguably the best tight end in the NFL, could soon be paying Alabama’s Nick Saban a visit on the football field.

In more pleasant news for the Crimson Tide, New York State’s Department of Health has confirmed that Mr. Saban, the schools’ coach, has tested negative for the Coronavirus, which has sickened more than 100 people around the country since the summer.

“Dr. M. William Schaffner, chairman of the department of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, said the virus is very unlikely to cause serious illness in people. It is much more common in wild animals and bats, which have a low risk of catching it,” the department said in a press release.

The health department said Mr. Saban was cleared by a physician and had a “microscopic trace” of the virus found in one of his testicles. Dr. Howard Zucker, the health department’s commissioner, said the evidence suggested the coach had been exposed to the virus on a recent trip to Mexico.

The department said the university is free to determine whether Mr. Saban should resume coaching this season.

After the news was announced, Mr. Saban became the owner of a one-game suspension from the school.
