Scott Van Pelt is one of the best on ESPN. That’s why it is particularly startling when he revealed on social media Thursday he will be off his SportCenter duties for a while.

Reason: A positive test for COVID-19. Van Pelt says he lost the ability smell and can’t taste anything.

He is not the first ESPN star to be hit with the awful virus. “College GameDay” panelist Desmond Howard had it and has made a total recovery.

Here is hoping for a swift recovery for Van Pelt so he can give us more of his great “Bad Beats” segment in the near future.
