T.J. Lang and Jordy Nelson Are The Latest Injuries

While RT T.J. Lang and WR Jordy Nelson were the big injury stories from last Sunday, no player is more needed than LB Clay Matthews, and he'll be back sometime, maybe:
Nelson has to be getting frustrated with his third separate (or re-injured) injury of the season. He hasn't missed that much time, only being held for one game, but now he's been pulled early in two others.

While none of these injuries seem too serious, no conclusions have yet been made by Mike McCarthy. The situation might look a lot different by Friday.

And a big "Thank You" to the college scouting department for finding undrafted guys like Don Barclay to step in and hold his own. Barclay was called for two penalties (one declined) so it wasn't an All-Pro performance, but he's certainly better than a lot of other teams' third-string option.
