ESPN's Todd McShay Taking 'Some Time' Off After Troubling TV Appearance

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.
