Ravens wide receiver Dez Bryant said he’s tested negative for COVID-19 twice now, after his original positive test on Tuesday. 

Bryant produced two inconclusive tests on Tuesday before a positive test just before kickoff against his former team pulled him off the field. In the aftermath, Bryant expressed his disappointment on Twitter and even said he was “done” with the 2020 season. 

Ravens coach John Harbaugh and a handful of players made available to the media understood the frustration that Bryant was going through, as the Cowboys game was one that was long awaited for him.

“He’s doing as well as can be expected,” Harbaugh said. “He sacrificed a lot to leave home and leave family behind, those kind of things. He’s a family man, has kids. I think he’s pretty hurt by it. Not mad at anybody, but just the circumstances, I think he’s a little stunned by it. Surprised that it came up.”

Should Bryant not have COVID-19, he will be available for the team’s game on Monday night against the Browns. The Ravens, with Willie Snead back, would have their full assortment of receivers for Monday Night Football.

“Hit Dez up after the game, we really wanted him out there,” quarterback Lamar Jackson said. “We know it was his former team. We know what he wanted to do against that team, he wanted to score, he wanted to compete.

Bryant has played in three games this season for the Ravens and has four catches for 28 yards.
