Lions say Stafford's test was a false positive

DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Lions removed Matthew Stafford from the COVID-IR list, saying he received a false positive test result - and drawing the ire of the quarterback's wife toward the NFL.

The list was created for players who either test positive for COVID-19 or have been in close contact with an infected person. Stafford was listed on it Saturday, but the team said Tuesday his testing sequence for the pre-entry period was: negative, negative, false positive -- then the next three tests were all negative.

"To be clear, Matthew does NOT have COVID-19 and never has had COVID-19 and the test in question was a False-Positive," the team said in a statement. "Also, all of Matthew's family have been tested and everyone is negative."
