Matthew Stafford’s wife angry with the NFL

Written by Tony Ghaul

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford was placed in the NFL’s concussion protocol on Wednesday and it’s unclear when the concussion actually happened.

Kelly, Matthew’s wife, took to Instagram and shared her thoughts about the latest injury news on her husband.

“If you follow NFL, you just heard Matthew [Stafford] got put into concussion protocol,” she said in an Instagram story. “If you have listened to my podcast at all, you know how a big a deal it is to me. The head is not something to be messed with… and I hope as this sport develops so does the concern for head health and the research around it.

“And no, I’m not ok with it. I have every emotion running through me. Concerned, angry, sad, tired… all of them.”

In his latest press conference, Sean told reporters that he didn’t have any indication Matthew was dealing with concussion symptoms during the Rams’ Nov. 6 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But after the Super Bowl champion was examined by medical staff, he was asked to follow protocol.

It’s unclear if Matthew will be able to play on Nov. 13 when the Rams take on the Arizona Cardinals, the NFL player also has a full life off of the football field. The former Detroit Lions player is a dad to 5-year-old twins Chandler and Sawyer, as well as Hunter, 4, and Tyler Hall, 2.
