Notes: VIDEO: Matthew Stafford reunites with family after quarantine

Guhhhhh, who’s chopping onions in here.

The Lion has reunited with his cubs.

As Jeremy explained, the Staffords have had a rough time lately. Matthew Stafford has spent the last week in quarantine after having close contact with a non-team member who tested positive for COVID-19. That means spending time away from family, friends, and coaches.

His wife Kelly reacted to the news on social media saying the family had tested negative for the virus, but they were still feeling the stress of it. Then, on top of that, the Staffords’ two-year-old daughter Hunter fell from a high chair and suffered a concussion.

“So here I was with zero family around, panicking about hunter and realizing NO neighbors would come over because everyone thought we had covid,” Kelly wrote in an Instagram post this past weekend.

Matthew addressed his situation earlier in the weekend, saying he understands the quarantine protocols.

“Doesn’t make it easy, but everyone in the league is doing it. I just hate being away from my family. Finish a practice, finish a game, go hug my daughters, hug my wife. That’s what sometimes makes it worth for me, and not being able to see them and hang with them has been really tough.”

With all that in mind, the video Kelly posted today of Matthew’s reunion with his sweet daughters was all the more touching.

Melts my cold icy heart. And onto the rest of your notes.
