Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford will play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.

Stafford had been placed on the NFL’s coronavirus list because he was in close contact with someone who might have been positive. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

The team announced late Saturday afternoon that the star gunslinger had been cleared and taken off of the list.

That means he’ll be on the field slinging it Sunday against the Vikings.

I had no expectation of beating Minnesota without Stafford on the field. As we all know, the Lions are pathetic without Stafford out there throwing the ball around.

He’s the entire team. He missed a large chunk of the 2019 season, and we were awful without him on the field.

Having said that, he’ll be out there Sunday against Minnesota. That means there’s no excuses for not beating up on Minnesota.

The Vikings aren’t any good, and our best player will be on the field. So, let’s just go out there and get the damn job done.
