Ravens WR Dez Bryant tweeted Thursday that he’s produced back-to-back negative COVID-19 tests after being forced to miss Thursday’s game due to an inconclusive test followed by a positive.
I tested negative back to back for covid and I’m not excited about it

Interestingly enough, the Ravens did not place Bryant on the COVID-19 list on Wednesday, which was expected following the news of a positive test.
Bryant was forced to miss the game against his former team and later implied that he was going to sit out the remainder of the season.
On Thursday, Ravens HC John Harbaugh told reporters that Bryant remains in their plans this season.
Bryant, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2010. He was in the third year of his five-year, $70 million contract that included $45 million guaranteed and was set to make base salaries of $12.5 million over the final two years of the agreement when Dallas released him last year.
The Saints signed Bryant to a one-year deal worth $600,000 over the remainder of the season, but he suffered a torn Achilles. It took until a month ago for him to sign on to the Ravens’ practice squad. He’s bounced on and off Baltimore’s active roster since then.
In 2020, Bryant has appeared in three games and recorded four receptions for 28 yards receiving (7.0 YPC) and no touchdowns.
