Dez Bryant misses his revenge game against the Cowboys after testing positive for COVID-19 20 minutes before the game.
The NFL is trying their best to make the season go on until the end but as of now, more roadblocks keep jumping in front of their goal. Several players throughout this season have tested positive for COVID-19, putting in question the NFL’s safety protocol. To start, players aren’t in a bubble situation like the NBA, leaving ballers to potentially be exposed in a number of different ways.
Yesterday, after a long journey back to the NFL Dez Bryant was set to face his former team, the Dallas Cowboys, until he tested positive for COVID-19 20 minutes before the game, according to Sports Illustrated.
Dez Bryant of the Baltimore Ravens tested positive for Covid-19 before the game against the Dallas Cowboys and did not play. However, the game was played anyway, leaving many wondering why. So, how would you describe the NFL letting Cowboys-Ravens go on in a word?
This is problematic since it shows the NFL’s priority is definitely making a profit over safety, as many have pointed out since the beginning. Dez was still on the field talking with players and coaches with his mask down in several photos that surfaced.
After the news broke, Dez took to Twitter to voice his frustration.
Later, the three-time Pro Bowler tweeted that maybe missing the game was a sign from “God.”
Fans instantly flocked to Bryant’s comments with messages showing their love and support. One fan even commented, “Man I’ve followed your career since college. If anyone can overcome these odds you can. Never stop believing in yourself. Life throws us curveball. It’s how we react to these challenges that matters.”
Rest up Dez! You’ll be back on the field in no time.
