How Mathew Stafford handled Detroit ill wife Kelly is still something to admire. The Detroit Lions quarterback made a great deal, the team gave him space to do so.
Stafford was unable to be in the team workout, but when he had time, he tried to replicate, and then he would make it to the team meeting. He would then go back to the hospital before Kelly woke up. The Lions appreciated his effort and commitment.
Now Kelly is doing well, and Stafford can make it to the Lions practice camp. Stafford acknowledged that during such time, the priority might change. He must make sure that his family is well. Such an illness may result to a decrease in the dedication of a game. He added that there are times when one needs a bit of break to get something out of mind.
