OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Wide receiver Dez Bryant was elevated off the Baltimore Ravens‘ practice squad on Saturday, a source told ESPN’s Field Yates, making him eligible to play Sunday.
Bryant, 31, completed his second week on the Ravens’ practice squad. He hasn’t played in an NFL game since December 2017.
“I told you I’m covered confident and thankful..” Bryant wrote on Twitter Saturday. “I don’t care who hate it.”
The Ravens promoted Bryant to add depth at wide receiver. Rookie third-round pick Devin Duvernay (thigh) is questionable for Sunday’s game at Indianapolis and Chris Moore (thigh) was placed on injured reserve.
Asked Friday about the chances of Bryant playing for the Ravens, coach John Harbaugh said: “When we feel like he’s ready to come up, in shape, knows the offense well enough and has enough compatibility with Lamar [Jackson] on enough plays, then we’ll bring him up. So, when it happens … I think it will happen. I don’t think it’s something you want to force-feed in there. So, we’ll just have to see as we go.”
