The Detroit Lions have gone remote because of coronavirus.

The team announced Tuesday morning that their facility has temporarily closed following a pair of positive coronavirus tests. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

The Lions are currently scheduled to play the Buccaneers this upcoming Saturday, and there’s been no change to the status of that game as of right now.

Now, I understand that a lot of people might get nervous whenever a team closes up their facility, but I’m not sweating at all.

If this news was coming out on a Friday or Saturday, then I might be a bit more concerned. It’s only Tuesday.

That gives the NFL and the Lions plenty of time to get the situation under control before the game against the Bucs rolls around.

There’s no need at all to be concerned right now. There’s literally none. Now, if we get to Saturday and there are more positive tests, then it’s a different story.

Hopefully, that won’t end up being the case.
