ESPN’s Sam Ponder did not appear on this weekend’s Sunday NFL Countdown. Instead Trey Wingo stepped in for what they reported as an illness.
Ponder took to her Instagram story on Monday to reveal that her illness was actually seizure. She had the seizure on her flight from Phoenix to New York on Saturday.
Ponder indicated in the post that she’s undergoing tests and working with doctors to figure out why she had the seizure. She is hopeful that she’ll be able to return for this upcoming weekend’s show.
Her constant laughter at things that aren’t funny was absolutely missed this past weekend.
