Todd McShay update: ESPN releases statement on health of the analyst
Todd McShay’s illness Saturday had fans questioning if the broadcaster is really okay.
McShay was pulled off of the broadcast mid-game for the Wisconsin-Northwestern matchup due to an undisclosed illness, and college football fans were sincerely concerned about his health and well-being.
ESPN has been mum on McShay’s status for the last few days; however, ESPN gave a statement to Awful Announcing about his status moving forward.
“Todd McShay is recovering after feeling ill during Saturday’s game. He’s currently planning to work his game assignment this weekend,” the statement read.
McShay will join Sean McDonough, Todd Blackledge and Molly McGrath to call Pittsburgh at No. 4 Clemson on ESPN.
The ESPN sideline reporter and NFL Draft analyst has become quite popular in recent years. From his in-game reporting to evaluating NFL Draft prospects, McShay does a little bit of everything for ESPN, and he’s really good at it.
Thankfully, it appears that McShay is on the mend and will return to work this weekend after the below video sparked concern.
