Thursday update: Dez Bryant tweeted on Thursday that he has tested negative twice since Tuesday’s game.
UPDATE: Bryant is not taking the news well, tweeting that he is quitting. I think we can take this with a grain of salt, but here’s the tweet:
Yea I’m going to go ahead and call it a quit for the rest of the season... I can’t deal with this— Dez Bryant (@DezBryant) December 9, 2020
UPDATE: Bryant reportedly had an inconclusive test Tuesday morning and then was tested again during pregame and came back positive, per Jay Glazer.
The Baltimore Ravens and Dallas Cowboys kick off at 8:05 p.m. ET on Tuesday, and shortly before the game, something is up. Dez Bryant tweeted that he was pulled back from warming up to get tested for Covid-19 and it came back positive. It’s being reported he has been scratched for the game.
Bryant tweeted this out less than 30 minutes before kickoff.
Tell me why they pull me from warming up so I can go get tested... my shit come back positive... I tested positive for Covid WTF— Dez Bryant (@DezBryant) December 9, 2020
The Ravens are already without receiver Willie Snead and tight end Mark Andrews, who are both on the Covid-19 injured reserve list. Devin Duvernay is the No. 2 receiver behind Marquise Brown, and we can receiver Miles Boykin and tight ends Luke Willson and Eric Tomlinson to all see more work with Bryant now out.
