Analysis: Stafford was put on the Reserve/COVID-19 list that was created for players who either test positive or have been in close contact with an infected person. Stafford's wife, Kelly, said on social media he tested negative all week. Three months ago, the Lions removed Stafford from the COVID-19 list after saying he received a false positive test result.

Aug. 2, 20206:18 AM PT7:18 AM MT8:18 AM CT9:18 AM ET13:18 GMT21:18 6:18 AM MST7:18 AM CST8:18 AM EST8:18 AM CT17:18 UAE9:18 ET12:18 - Stafford was put on the list by the Detroit Lions, according to the league's transactions report Saturday. The reserve/COVID-19 list was created for players who either test positive for COVID-19 or have been in close contact with an infected person. The 32-year-old Stafford is easily one of the most high-profile players to land there.
Analysis: Stafford is entering his 12th season with Detroit after being drafted by the Lions with the No. 1 overall pick in 2009. Stafford played every game for the Lions from 2011-18, but back and hip injuries caught up with him and he missed half of last season. Detroit is coming off two straight bad seasons under coach Matt Patricia, who is under pressure to improve this year - if the NFL can even play.
