Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Dez Bryant, who was forced to sit out of his team's 34-17 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday, tweeted that he has now tested negative in back-to-back COVID-19 tests:
Bryant appeared ready to play in the hours leading up to Baltimore's game versus Dallas. He was seen warming up on the field and greeting members of the Cowboys, for whom he played from 2010-17.
However, Bryant was soon pulled off the field and ruled out with what the Ravens termed as an "illness." The 32-year-old wideout then revealed the news:
Bryant signed with the Ravens as a free agent earlier this season. He has appeared in three games, most notably recording four catches for 28 yards against the Tennessee Titans on Nov. 22.
Bryant was not at the Ravens' practice Thursday, per ESPN's Jamison Hensley. The wideout initially said Tuesday that he planned to sit out the rest of the season, but he then told a fan he was coming back and just "being smart."
The Ravens' next game is scheduled for Monday against the Cleveland Browns.
