The good buzz around the Lions huge win over the Arizona Cardinals barely lasted 24 hours. Monday’s roster move announcement from Detroit was a downer.

Starting quarterback Jared Goff has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Goff is coming off a great game against the Cardinals, throwing three touchdowns and showing toughness and leadership. Reserve offensive tackle Matt Nelson joins Goff on the COVID list.

With the new NFL guidelines for COVID-19 testing, Goff and Nelson can return if they are asymptomatic and vaccinated after just one negative test.

In addition to those moves, starting LB Alex Anzalone is now on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. With just three games left on the schedule, Anzalone’s first season in Detroit is effectively over.

Not all of the news was negative. The Lions did activate RB Jamaal Williams and CB Mark Gilbert from the reserve/COVID-19 list. Both will be ready for practice on Wednesday after clearing the necessary protocols.

The team also made the signing of RB Craig Reynolds official.
