    Former NFL wide receiver Orlando McDaniel has died from the coronavirus at age 59.

    McDaniel, a star hurdler during his college days at Louisiana State University, died after becoming ill when he returned home to Dallas from Washington DC, his LSU athletics coach, Dennis Shaver, told the Baton Rouge Advocate newspaper.

    McDaniel was selected by the Denver Broncos with the 50th pick in the 1982 NFL Draft.

    He played three games for Denver that season but failed to make a catch in his lone NFL campaign.

    In 1980, McDaniel was the US college national runner-up in the 110m hurdles but never had a chance at the Olympics that year because of the American boycott of the Moscow Games.

  10. Devlin doubt over remainder of season

    Michael Devlin admits he and his Aberdeen team-mates are struggling to see how the season can be finished.

    Scotland’s chief medical officer, Catherine Calderwood, has predicted restrictions on movement will be needed for "at least 13 weeks", virtually ruling out Uefa's ambition to see domestic leagues completed by 30 June.

    "The overwhelming feeling, from my understanding, it’s very difficult to see how the league will continue without disrupting next season," Devlin said.

    "And I think that will be the priority. As much as of course we want to finish this season then I’m not quite sure how we do that if we extend the season, with the added complication in Scotland that contracts expire at the end of May."
