Smiley fell as she tried to photograph Stafford and his wife. The Rams’ quarterback turned and walked away while Kelly Stafford went over to check on Smiley.
Smiley wrote on Instagram she was “Feeling ok” and added, “Thank you everyone for reaching out.” She has not responded to CNN’s request for comment.
The Rams said they were sorry for what happened and they and the Staffords would take care of Smiley’s expenses from the fall.
“As we told Kelly, we will be covering all her hospital bills and replacing her cameras,” a team spokesperson told CNN. “We wish her a speedy recovery.”
The GoFundMe account has raised more than $45k.
CNN has reached out to the NFL for comment.
