Packers linebacker Clay Matthews could be out for a “couple of weeks”
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that All-Pro linebacker Clay Matthews could miss “a couple of weeks” because of a recurring hamstring injury.
McCarthy also said that receiver Jordy Nelson will be “fine” after dealing with ankle and hamstring injuries.
The Packers have Week 10 off and don’t return to action until a road date with the Detroit Lions Nov. 18. Matthews, in his fourth season, has 31 tackles and one forced fumble this season and is tied for second in the NFL with nine sacks.
