Nebraska football great Johnny Rodgers is back home after spending more than two weeks in the hospital with COVID-19.

The 1972 Heisman Trophy winner said in an interview with the Associated Press that he believes his superior physical condition helped him have a better outcome than many 70-year olds who contract the coronavirus. 

Rodgers acknowledged that he has not been vaccinated.  But he said he plans to get vaccinated when doctors clear him to do so.
