Laurent Duvernay-Tardif has returned to the Kansas City Chiefs roster a year after making the decision to opt of the 2020 NFL season.
Instead of joining his teammates to try to run it back for a second Super Bowl appearance, Duvernay-Tardif suited up for a different team.
He stayed home in his native Canada to use his medical degree and fight the COVID-19 crisis. He worked as an orderly at a nursing home in Montreal during his year away from football. He said he wanted any role he could find that helped him fight the pandemic.
