The Baltimore Ravens announced Tuesday that they’ve activated WR Dez Bryant from the COVID-19 list and placed QB Trace McSorley on injured reserve.

Bryant was placed on the COVID-19 list before their Week 13 game against the Cowboys. He produced an inconclusive test, but later tested negative in the days to follow. 

McSorley is reportedly dealing with a minor knee sprain. 

It’s worth mentioning that the NFL changed the rules regarding injured reserve for the 2020 season and players can return from the list in just three weeks. 

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.
