Clay Matthews To Miss At Least A Month

Packers_Clay_Matthews_2013 [1]Packers coach Mike McCarthy was vague yesterday when asked about linebacker Clay Matthews‘ thumb injury, saying he was hopeful it wouldn’t be season-ending.

It will, however, knock him out for several games. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Matthews had surgery yesterday [2] to repair a broken thumb, and will be out at least a month.

That will force Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers to make some major adjustments on defense, without his best pass-rusher.
