Washington Redskins rookie receiver Antonio Gandy-Golden says he tested positive for the new coronavirus in March and was fully recovered by early April.
He says his symptoms were mild and he feels 100% now and is ready to get on the field.
Gandy-Golden played the past two seasons at Liberty, an evangelical college in Virginia that reopened this spring despite the COVID-19 pandemic. School President Jerry Falwell Jr. appeared to reference Gandy-Golden on Fox News by saying that an online student who tested positive was never on campus and left school to enter the NFL draft.
The Redskins selected Gandy-Golden in the fourth round.
