Unfortunately for the Staffords, everyone assumed Matthew had tested positive for Coronavirus after the NFL announced they were putting him on the Covid-19 IR list which led to the family getting harassed in their everyday life.
Kelly Stafford took to Instagram to blast the NFL for their handling of the situation and putting her family in an awkward position for four days.
Kelly Stafford, wife of Matthew: "I blame the NFL for not holding themselves accountable. These are people's lives and livelihoods that are in those results in THEIR test sites. Maybe we should be absolutely positive a person has covid before releasing that info to the world."
