One of the best football players EVER says COVID-19 whooped his butt … with Larry Fitzgerald telling reporters Thursday he lost NINE POUNDS while battling the virus.
… oh, and the future Hall of Famer says he’s STILL having trouble smelling and tasting things.
The Arizona Cardinals superstar tested positive for coronavirus in the last week of November … and in his first meeting with media members since the diagnosis, Fitz explained it wasn’t fun at all.
Larry Fitzgerald said he feels a lot better now since, but still can’t taste or smell anything due to COVID. Added: “There were a couple days I didn’t feel great.”

“There were a couple days I didn’t feel great,” the 37-year-old said … adding all of the reports of coronavirus deaths had him terrified.
Fitz explained he lost weight and actually re-worked his will while he was sick … saying, “You reevaluate things.”
Fortunately, Larry has been testing negative the past few days … and he was activated from the Cardinals’ COVID/Reserve list earlier this week.
Fitz is expected to suit up for Arizona’s game against the Giants this week … but after sitting out for so long due to the virus, it’s not clear how many reps he’ll get during the key game.
