According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, the Detroit Lions will stay in their Allen Park facility this week and are planning to practice as scheduled on Wednesday despite the fact that linebacker Jarrad Davis was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Tuesday.

The Lions put out an official statement about Davis, noting that they aren’t allowed to reveal if the linebacker has tested positive for COVID-19 or if he was placed on the list for being in close contact with someone who tested positive.

However, because the Lions are planning on going right back to practice on Wednesday, it’s a good sign that the rest of the team and staff has tested negative, as players continue to get tested on daily basis.

As always, this is a fluid situation, and we’ll be sure to provide updates as we get them. For now, though, it appears everything is staying as scheduled, including Detroit’s Week 9 game against the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday.
