The cornerback, who is 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs 197 pounds, was the first well-known college player to decide without playing in 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak.

According to Greene, several agencies are looking into the explosion’s cause, therefore it is not yet evident who might be responsible. According to Greene, the gas meter used to gauge the amount of fuel gases flowing into surrounding residences has been sequestered and does not currently present a threat to other members of the neighborhood.
In reference to his teammate, Titans safety Kevin Byard commented, “I know he lost his mother at a young age as well.” He has faced a lot of hardship. The tragedy is great. It’s a catastrophe that is unthinkable.
In an email, Dominion Energy’s spokesperson Bonita Billingsley Harris stated that the utility was among the first on the scene and was collaborating with the authorities.
