GMA’S Michael Strahan has dove into a new project while he remains absent from the morning show.
The 51-year-old was again missing from the news desk on Friday after multiple absences this week.
Michael‘s whereabouts were explained in a tweet from Good Morning America‘s official Twitter page, which teased his upcoming interview.
In the clip, the former NFL star sat down with Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin to discuss his scary medical emergency during a game last month and his recovery.
Damar suffered a cardiac arrest on the field while tackling Cincinnati Bengals’ wide receiver Tee Higgins in a regular season matchup.
The defensive back was rushed to the local ICU, where he was in a medically induced state of unconsciousness for three days.
He was released from Cincinnati hospital and sent to a Buffalo-area hospital a week later, and he has since returned home to finish his recovery.
The interview is scheduled to air on GMA on Monday.
Although the interview was pre-taped, Michael has yet to return to his post on the program.
As usual, the TV personality was off on Monday as he is a football analyst on FOX on Sundays.

He returned to Studio 1A on Tuesday but skipped out on his duties the rest of the week.
Michael’s absence Wednesday was due to scoring a major interview with Los Angeles Lakers legend LeBron James.
He was replaced by his colleague, Rebecca Jarvis, on Thursday’s edition of GMA, while Lara Spencer filled in for him on Friday alongside veteran anchor George Stephanopoulos,
Frontrunner Robin Roberts – who recently marked 10 years since she returned to GMA following a bone marrow transplant – was also absent on Friday.
Michael is said to be in Arizona ahead of the Super Bowl taking place this weekend.
The athlete also conducted another interview with football coach Deion Sanders ahead of the big game.
Footage shared on Instagram showed Michael embracing the former football star during their one-on-one.
The former New York Giants defensive end joked: “Had to let Deion Sanders know his pants were too tight LOL.”
Deon was sporting a blue outfit and paired it with white sneakers.
Meanwhile, Michael looked dapper as he donned a shirt, a pair of checked trousers, and smart shoes.
The daytime TV star has been busy as he’s also been promoting his new Super Bowl-inspired clothing range – MSX x Starter Collection.
The jackets feature the Super Bowl logo and contain nods to The Grand Canyon State.
Michael worked with Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham, who will be playing in the game, to promote the apparel.
In a clip shared on social media, Brandon donned a Super Bowl LVII bomber jacket.
He picked up another one that had the Super Bowl label printed on it and said it was “sweet.”
Michael captioned the post: “You are good to take the tags off because the fit is right LOL.
“Appreciate you showing love to our MSX x Starter collection.
“Appreciate the way you play the game and good luck in the SB.”
Last month, Michael was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the first in the Sports Entertainment category.
