Team: 

Date Player
8/2/2020 Antonio Brown, NE, WR
The NFL suspended Brown for the first eight regular-season games of the 2020 season.

Analysis: Brown, who does not have a contract with any team, was suspended Friday under the league's personal conduct policy. Brown, who played one game last season for the Patriots before being released, can be signed by any team and would be eligible to participate in all of his club's preseason activities. The suspension would take effect when teams make their final cuts on Sept. 5.
8/2/2020 Matthew Stafford, Det, QB
Stafford was put on the list by the Detroit Lions, according to the league's transactions report Saturday. The reserve/COVID-19 list was created for players who either test positive for COVID-19 or have been in close contact with an infected person. The 32-year-old Stafford is easily one of the most high-profile players to land there.

Analysis: Stafford is entering his 12th season with Detroit after being drafted by the Lions with the No. 1 overall pick in 2009. Stafford played every game for the Lions from 2011-18, but back and hip injuries caught up with him and he missed half of last season. Detroit is coming off two straight bad seasons under coach Matt Patricia, who is under pressure to improve this year - if the NFL can even play.
