Sony Michel, a retired NFL running back, took to social media to dispel a story spread by an X user that claimed he had perished in a motorbike accἰdent. Although he had returned to the Los Angeles Rams a month earlier, Michel, 28, announced his retirement from the NFL two weeks prior.
He didn’t think he could handle another season’s atrophy any longer. The erroneous report was disseminated online by user “@BeatintheBookie” of X, who later expressed regret for his inaccurate sources. He made the account private as well. The user tweeted:
“My sources were incorrect I guess. It was an error to post regardless. Glad to hear he is still with us. Last time I try to report any news. Sorry guys,”

What Happened to Sony Michel?
Unfortunately, confusion resulted in false rumors that Sony Michel, a two-time Super Bowl champion, had pἀssed away. The recently retired running back announced his survival on social media and called the rumors “fake news” in response.
The false news that Michel had perished in a motorbike accἰdent broke the same day that NFL running back Alex Collins had perished in that accἰdent.
As a result, media outlets may have misidentified them when they jumped on the story too quickly. Both the true case and the fraudulent story indicated that the incidents took place in Florida and that both athletes were 28 years old.
