Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions are in the NFL's "Intensive Protocol" after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19.

According to the football club's statement, the employee immediately self-quarantined and hasn't been in the practice facility for 48 hours.

The team practiced Friday, in compliance with the Intensive Protocol and are taking precautionary measures at the Allen Park practice facility, the statement said.

They are continuing to get guidance from the NFL, medical staff and the team doctor as they prepare for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings.
