(WXYZ) — Detroit Lions Quarterback Matthew Stafford has gotten right back to work with the team following his wife Kelly undergoing brain surgery last week, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Kelly Stafford returned home on Sunday, just a few days after undergoing brain surgery to remove a tumor.
According to Schefter, the team told Stafford to take as much time as he needed during the off-season, but he was at the team's training facility in Allen Park on Monday morning, ready for work.
With Matthew Stafford’s wife, Kelly, undergoing 12 hours of brain surgery and returning home only last weekend, the Lions told their QB to take as much time off as needed this off-season. Yet Stafford was at the Lions’ training facility first thing Monday morning, ready for work.
