OL Brandon Knight says he's taking a break from football

·1-min read

BALTIMORE (AP) — Former Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Brandon Knight says he's taking a break from football to address his mental health.

Knight went from the Cowboys to Baltimore via waivers this week, but he did not report to the Ravens. In a message on Twitter on Thursday, he thanked the Ravens for the opportunity.

“As of now, I've decided to take a break from football to address my mental health,” Knight said. “Although it was a difficult decision, it was a necessary one to be back home with my family. I look forward to returning next season.”

The 24-year-old former Indiana lineman played 21 games for Dallas over two-plus seasons. The Ravens put him on the reserve/did not report list.
