After placing eight players on the Reserve/COVID-19 list almost right off the bat, the Detroit Lions have reportedly reached what is a good milestone.
Jeff Risdon of Lions Wire reported on Friday that the Lions have now gone 13-straight days without a positive COVID-19 test result from either a player, coach, or staff member. Risdon notes that with nearly two clean weeks, the Lions have now had over 1,000 consecutive tests without a positive result.
Of the eight players the Lions originally placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, seven have been removed, including Matthew Stafford, who had a false-positive test.
The only Lion still on the list is undrafted rookie, Jalen Elliott.
With the season approaching quickly, we can only hope that the Lions players and staff members continue to do their part to protect themselves and their teammates and coaches from the spread of COVID-19.
DAN ORLOVSKY SAYS MATTHEW STAFFORD COULD LEAVE THE DETROIT LIONS IN 2021
Ok, I have had just about enough of the “Matthew Stafford is leaving the Detroit Lions” and “The Detroit Lions are going to trade Matthew Stafford” make-believe bull-honky, just as many of you have. That being said, when Dan Orlovsky, who is a good friend of Stafford, talks about Matthew potentially playing elsewhere in the very near future, it’s worth listening to.
Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press recently spoke to Orlovsky about Stafford’s chances of making the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and Orlovsky seems extremely confident.
“I don’t think it’s even going to be a question,” he said.
Orlovsky said he believes Stafford will either win with the Lions in 2020 or a winning team will trade for him prior to the 2021 season.
