The Bengals flash is on his way back from California to rejoin the team, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported. Ross had left to care of his son and mother who had each tested positive for COVID-19.
Because of his exposure to his COVID-positive family members, Ross is now Bengals’ reserve/COVID-19 list.
“We were just texting. I didn’t really want to call and just hear his voice because I didn’t want him to feel down on himself,” Boyd said. “I just want him to take his time. I know he’s strong and he’s going to be able to provide for his family and things like that, but I know a lot of guys was hitting him and reaching out to him. We were texting a couple times back and forth and I just wanted him to just be with his family and just worry about it [football] whenever things start to get better.”
