Andy Dalton has been cleared of COVID-19 after testing negative, but get this he still does not have his taste or smell. The Cowboys quarterback told reporters that while he feels fine, he still cannot smell or taste anything.

“You can tell things are sweet,” the 33-year-old said. “You can tell things are salty. You just don’t get the flavor with it.”

Dalton, trying to make light of it all, said it’s actually helping his diet … “I can eat really healthy right now, and it doesn’t matter because I can’t taste it.”

“Been a crazy three weeks,” said Dalton, who had to recover from a concussion at the same time as his COVID diagnosis, “but excited to be on the other side of it.”

Dalton is expected to start Sunday against the Vikings. This is going to be interesting to see how he does. It seems weird that you can test negative and still have symptoms.
