The Green Bay Packers are currently saddled with injuries to major contributors, but Clay Matthews is making strides towards returning to the field. Clay Matthews will have the pins removed from his hand on Monday. The Packers are preparing to take on the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. Matthews obviously won't be able to join the team for their Monday Night Football appearance, but he could potentially be available for next week's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Green Bay Packers should be feeling pretty confident heading into a four-game stretch consisting of the Chicago Bears, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants and Minnesota Vikings . Still, it would be helpful to get some of the many regular contributors currently injured back in the lineup. Clay Matthews is one of the stars of the Green Bay defense and appears to be inching closer to returning to the field. Matthews will have the pins removed from his hand on Monday.
Clay Matthews broke his right thumb on Oct. 6 against the Detroit Lions, robbing the Packers of their top pass rusher and the player in their front seven that opposing teams are forced to game plan around. Green Bay has done a nice job moving forward after absorbing the loss of Matthews, winning every game in his absence.
Clay Matthews isn't the only Packers defender missing time. Brad Jones injured his hamstring in the same game against the Lions and hasn't returned since, while Nick Perry is currently out with a foot injury. That's three starting linebackers sidelined with injuries, but Dom Capers has been able to keep his defense rolling while waiting for them to get healthy.
Clay Matthews has recorded three sacks this season in four games. The lowest total he has been held to over the course of a season in his NFL career is six, which happened in 2011. Matthews has not been held under double-digit sacks during any other season.
