ESPN NFL Draft analyst and college football sideline reporter Todd McShay will take “some time” to focus on his “health” and his “family” after a disturbing television appearance last weekend.
McShay was working the sidelines of the Alabama-Miami game on Saturday when he appeared to misspeak and seemed distracted.

On Tuesday, McShay announced that he was taking some time off to deal with his health.
I am going to take some time away to focus on my health and my family. Thank you ESPN for being so supportive and for all the well wishes – I can’t wait to be back on the sidelines soon.
