Baltimore – Ravens wide receiver Des Bryant On Tuesday night, 30 minutes before reuniting with the Dallas Cowboys, he surprisingly announced that he had tested positive for COVID-19.
“Tell me why they are pulling me out of the heat so I can go to the test,” Bryant posted on Twitter. “… I did a positive test for Covit.
“Crazy, I have the same bad habit. … these s — I do not understand.”
According to the NFL, Bryant’s PCR test on Tuesday morning was endless, a retreat of the test. The lab is in Maryland, which is why the results came back Tuesday evening.
Subsequent point-of-contact PCR testing at the ground was positive and Bryant was removed according to NFL protocol.
Sources told ESPN that the NFL and NFLBA were not concerned about close ties with Bryant because Ravens had been operating under very strict protocols for the past two weeks, which eliminated the possibility of close contact. .
Bryant said he will not return this season.
“Yeah, I’m going to go ahead and leave it at that for the rest of the season,” Bryant posted on Twitter. “… I can’t deal with this.”

After Bryant’s initial tweet, Ravens announced that Bryant had been scratched due to ill health.
Bryant was on the field two hours before the kickoff, and the backup caught the pass from the quarterback. Trace McSerley. He crossed his arms for the signature “X” before walking down the tunnel to the locker room.
Bryant did not cover his face all the time.
Bryant went unnoticed when Baltimore hosted the warm-ups of its entire team.
Bryant, 32, started playing cowboys for the first time since Dallas cut him off two years ago. A few days before the game, Bryant said playing for a team that had spent eight seasons was “an exciting moment” and an owner-record 73 touchdown passes.
He became the first Ravens player to test positive in a week. The Ravens were involved in one of the biggest explosions in professional sports, with a dozen players testing positively over the 10-day extension.
After joining the Ravens coaching team on Oct. 27, Bryant signed into action four weeks later. In three games, Bryant did not make much of an impact on the NFL’s 31st-ranked passing attack, making four catches for 28 yards.
