Arizona Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill is hospitalized on the East Coast with COVID-19, the team confirmed to The Arizona Republic on Friday.
Bidwill had been traveling in the east the past several weeks, the team said. He wasn't feeling well earlier this week, with a headache and fever, and he tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
After a physician's recommendation, he admitted himself into a hospital in Rhode Island to monitor his symptoms. Those symptoms have subsided, and he is expecting to be released this weekend, per the team.
Because Bidwill has been on the East Coast for a few weeks, the team believes he did not contract the virus in Arizona and instead caught it while traveling.
