GREEN BAY — Kicking Covid: Mason Crosby shares his fight with coronavirus. As the Packers all-time leading scorer in franchise history returns for his 14th NFL season.

"When we came back, actually, I tested negative the first day, and then I did have a positive test," Mason Crosby said. "So I went into the protocol. And fortunately, my symptoms were very mild. And yeah, I was, I went through the 10-day protocol, as everyone else has, and was able to get back on the field I think as fast as I possibly could have."

TMJ4 Main Sports Anchor Lance Allan said Mason Crosby said fortunately his wife Molly's cancer is in remission. After consulting with doctors, they said he could safely play.

"Molly and I, we had a conversation," Mason Crosby said. "And you know, we talked to her doctors there at Mayo Clinic and you know Doctor Evan here with the team. And you know, they felt like now, you know a year removed and having you know a clean bill of health that she's had in her check-ups? That she was at this moment, not a high risk. So, you know, we went through that evaluation process. I'm not a speculator, but you know it's, I think if the situation would have occurred last year? It might have been a different conversation."

Crosby kicked cancer and COVID-19. That's a winning combination.
