Gandy-Golden tested positive for the coronavirus March 24 but has since self-quarantined and is asymptomatic, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
The No. 142 overall pick in April's draft, Gandy-Golden won't face any limitations due to the virus when the Redskins hold training camp later in the summer. The 6-foot-4, 223-pound Gandy-Golden is expected to compete with Kelvin Harmon for the starting role out wide opposite Terry McLaurin, while Steven Sims profiles as Washington's top option in the slot.
The Redskins selected Gandy-Golden in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 142nd overall.
Gandy-Golden is an interesting prospect out of LIberty, though his landing spot in Washington is rather discouraging. As a big receiver (6-foot-4, 223) with mediocre long speed (4.6-second 40), Gandy-Golden is probably somewhat redundant to second-year wideout Kelvin Harmon. Terry McLaurin is of course the unchallenged WR1, while Steven Sims is the favorite for the slot role. Gandy-Golden is a fine value at this point, to be fair, and perhaps Washington will be glad to have him if Harmon disappoints. Gandy-Golden was extremely productive at Liberty, catching 150 pases for 2,433 yards and 20 touchdowns over the last two years.
