Redskins rookie WR Antonio Gandy-Golden says he was diagnosed with COVID-19, recovered before draft

Washington Redskins wide receiver Antonio Gandy-Golden was diagnosed with COVID-19 during his preparation for April's NFL draft and has since recovered from the novel coronavirus, he said Wednesday.

"During my pre-draft training, I tested positive for COVID-19 on March 24," Gandy-Golden said in a statement. "My symptoms thankfully were mild, but I self-quarantined for two weeks and followed all guidelines from health experts. I was fully cleared April 7. I feel 100% now and can’t wait to get on the field for the Redskins ASAP! #HTTR!!"

Gandy-Golden was a fourth-round pick by the Redskins. At Liberty, he recorded 150 catches for 2,433 yards and 20 touchdowns in the last two years. 

Los Angeles Rams center Brian Allen and Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller are the only two other active NFL players known to have tested positive for COVID-19 so far. Former Redskins defensive lineman Dexter Manley is recovering from the novel coronavirus, ex-teammate John Riggins said Tuesday.
