He is retiring again because of health concerns. The actor, who was diagnosed decades ago with Parkinson’s disease, shares his thoughts on the subject in his new book, No Time Like the Future.

He writes that “There is a time for everything, and my time of putting in a 12-hour workday, and memorizing 7 pages of dialogue, is best behind me,” he writes.

“You can tell things are sweet,” the 33-year-old said. “You can tell things are salty. You just don’t get the flavor with it. I can eat really healthy right now, and it doesn’t matter because I can’t taste it.”

The former Cincinnati Bengal is not sure how he contracted the virus, but said that his wife and one of his three sons also tested positive. He has since cleared both COVID-19 and concussion protocol and will return to the Cowboys’ matchup with the Vikings on Sunday.
