Big breaking news is out from the Detroit Lions camp, as quarterback Matthew Stafford has been placed on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) list for the team.
Per the Pride of Detroit on Twitter, the placement does not mean Stafford tested positive for the virus. It is a direct possibility that he could have came into contact with someone who had tested positive.
Along with Stafford, a few more players have been added or is currently on the list includes wide receiver Kenny Golladay, tight ends T.J. Hockenson and Isaac Nauta, running back D’Andre Swift and cornerbacks Amani Oruwariye and Justin Coleman.
The players will undergo strict quarantine guidelines, in which they are separated for either asymptomatic or symptomatic cases.
There is no specific report on the quarterback’s health based on why he made the list, but with his wife, Kelly, who underwent brain surgery a couple years ago, and a newborn baby at their house, it should be expected that their health will come first for them.
