Redskins WR recruit Antonio Gandy-Golden tested positive for coronavirus in March


Washington Redskins rookie wide receiver Antonio Gandy-Golden tested positive for COVID-19 on March 24, but noted that his symptoms were mild and that he was completely eliminated two weeks later, he said. he said in a statement on Wednesday.

Gandy-Golden said in the statement that he had self-quarantined for two weeks and “had followed all the directions of the health experts.”

“I feel 100% now and look forward to being on the field for the Redskins as soon as possible! Said Gandy-Golden.

The Redskins have not reopened their building to anyone other than coaches and those who have scheduled rehabilitation sessions. Support staff may start to return, but the Redskins do not know what will happen or who will be allowed to return.

This means that Gandy-Golden and his teammates have been limited to Zoom meetings with their coaches. Coach Ron Rivera said Wednesday in a webinar with military families that he held his first team meeting via Zoom on Monday. Rivera said there were 130 people on the call, including each player and coach.

Gandy-Golden is the first person in the Redskins organization known to have had coronavirus. Former Grand Dexter Manley of the Redskins was hospitalized over the weekend for symptoms, and a source close to him said he was resting comfortably.

Washington drafted Gandy-Golden in the fourth round of Liberty. He will compete for a starting job against Terry McLaurin. The 6 foot 4 inch Gandy-Golden captured 231 passes at Liberty, including 32 for touchdowns.
