Just moments ago, news broke that the Detroit Lions had traded the Dallas Cowboys for DE Everson Griffen.
According to reports, the Lions (as we predicted on Monday) only had to send a conditional sixth-round pick to the Cowboys in exchange for Griffen’s services.
But, thanks to COVID-19 protocols, Griffen will not be able to play for the Lions in their upcoming game against the Indianapolis Colts.
So, when will Griffen be eligible to make his debut with the Lions?
According to Tom Pelissero, Griffen’s debut is likely to come on Nov. 8 against his former team, the Minnesota Vikings!
Because of COVID-19 protocols, Everson Griffen won't be available Sunday against the #Colts.
