One of the many concerns going into the 2020 College Football season is the alarming number of players who may opt out due to concerns over COVID-19. One Big 12 team may just be without their most important players this season due to an underlying condition.

According to multiple sources, Max Duggan was discovered to have a heart condition during COVID-19 testing through the team. Though he was unaware of the condition, it is being reported that he has had it his entire life.
It has become common knowledge by now that COVID-19 is more harmful to those with underlying conditions. For Duggan, any kind of heart condition could potentially make him more susceptible to the disease.
As of now, Duggan is out indefinitely. He is expected to miss at least the first part of the 2020 season, but could be out longer depending on the severity of the virus and his condition.
