CelebNSports247.com reports that on Wednesday Washington Redskins rookie wide receiver Antonio Gandy-Golden tested positive for COVID-19 in the run up to the draft but has since self-quarantined and is asymptomatic.
Now that it’s been some time since his diagnosis, Gandy-Golden released a statement through his agent.
Gandy-Golden said, via Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network:
During my pre-draft training, I tested positive for COVID-19 on March 24. My symptoms thankfully were mild, but I self-quarantined for two weeks and followed all the guidelines from health experts. I was fully cleared April 7. I feel 100 percent now and can’t wait to get on the field for the Redskins ASAP!
Gandy-Golden was selected by the Redskins in the fourth round with the No. 142 overall pick. He recorded over 1,000 receiving yards and at least 10 touchdowns during his last two seasons at Liberty, and left the program as the all-time leader in catches with 240, receiving yards with 3,814 and touchdowns with 33. He’s got great size at 6-foot-4 and 223 pounds, as well as an absurd catch radius.
