Matthew Stafford is currently not practicing with his team after being placed on the Lions' Reserve/COVID-19 list. This is the second time in three months that he's been placed on the list, but he could still play on Sunday against the Vikings.

Stafford, according to his wife Kelly, hasn't tested positive COVID-19. In fact, nobody in their household has. The Staffords were however exposed to the virus.
Kelly, who criticized the NFL for naming players who end up on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, took the opportunity to sarcastically thank the league for naming Stafford again.
This comes after Kelly took a shot at the Detroit Free Press for blaming the Lions loss to the Colts on the quarterback. She's clearly enjoying fighting Matthew's battles for him.

NFL rules require that Stafford isolate for five days from last contact. If he continues to test negative during this time then he would be eligible to rejoin the Lions on Sunday.
That's great news for the Lions. As bad as they are with Stafford, they're barely an NFL team without him.
