Dez Bryant tested positive for COVID-19 shortly before the Baltimore Ravens and Dallas Cowboys kicked off at M&T Bank Stadium on Tuesday night.
It wasn’t the Ravens or the Adam Schefters of the world who delivered the news about Bryant’s positive test. It was the veteran wide receiver himself, whose tweet about the test ignited a spree of posts that ran through the end of the Week 14 finale.
The series of tweets saw Bryant question the league’s handling of the situation, float a perceived retirement note and explain how he was coping with the matter.

Well, that was a ride.
Bryant likely can take some solace in the facts that the Ravens snapped their losing streak and did so against his former team. A 34-17 win over Dallas improved Baltimore to 7-5 on the season and kept Lamar Jackson and CO. on the doorstep of an AFC Wild Card spot.
