Packers LB Clay Matthews, who re-broke his thumb in Sunday's loss to the Steelers, has been officially ruled out for this weekend's NFC North Championship Game against the Bears, Bleacher Report reports. This comes as no surprise, but you know, it wasn't made official until today.
Anyway, I'd like to be upset about this, but really, I couldn't care less. Pretty much all season, Matthews has either been hurt or unproductive, so I don't feel like his absence will effect the Packers this week the slightest bit. If anything, his being gone just might help them a little on defense.
