Packers LB Matthews has a broken thumb; could miss a month
Just when you thought that the Packers were actually getting healthy again, some bad news about their starting LB, Clay Matthews, came in today. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Matthews has a broken thumb and could miss up to month due to the injury. If that happens, Matthews will miss four games: two at home and two on the road. The road games he would miss would be against the Ravens and the Vikings, while the games at Lambeau he could miss (remember it's just a could as I write this) would come against the Browns and the Bears. Besides the Ravens game, all of those matchups seem to be likely wins, so, while I don't want #52 to be miss more time, it probably won't mess up the season if this worst-case scenario comes true. But it still really is unfortunate that this had to happen now.
