HOF recognizes Chiefs' Duvernay-Tardif for work fighting COVID-19
Kansas City Chiefs right guard and medical school graduate Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, who is working on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic in Canada, is being recognized for his efforts by the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
It was announced over the weekend that Duvernay-Tardif's medical scrubs and lab coat are now on display at the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
Duvernay-Tardif became the first NFL player to opt out of the 2020 campaign in July, calling it one of the most difficult decisions he's ever made.
The 29-year-old has been helping at a long-term care facility in his native Quebec while also working toward a master's degree in public health at Harvard University's T.H. Chan School of Public Health, according to Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette. He said he plans to return to the Chiefs next season.
