Washington Redskins legend, Dexter Manley, has tested positive for COVID-19 former teammate Darryl Grant reported via Facebook Friday evening. 

"He tried to shake it," Grant said in a post. "14 days of fever trying to be a boss. His daughter Dalis told me this."

Luckily, some good news surfaced Saturday evening as The Athletic's Ben Standig reported Manley is "resting comfortably and in no imminent danger at this time."

Manley, 61, had an 11-year career in the NFL from 1981 to 1991. He played for the Redskins, in which he claimed two Super Bowl championships, Phoenix Cardinals and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
