Matthew Stafford's False Positive for COVID-19

On Saturday, Detroit Lions Matthew Stafford was placed on the COVID-19 reserve list. This morning, the news broke on Fox 2 that Stafford "tested positive" for COVID-19. He tested negative twice last week until a third test was done Friday, which came back positive.

Stafford is the first starting quarterback to be placed on any team's COVID-19 list.

Players who show symptoms cannot be cleared until at least 10 days from the time symptoms first occurred.

The news following proved the test was a false positive.
