GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Clay Matthews may never be free of hamstring issues, but at least now the Green Bay Packers linebacker has gotten smarter about dealing with them.

Matthews said on Thursday, when he was a full participant in practice for the first time since his latest hamstring injury, that he took himself out of the Week 3 game against the Cincinnati Bengals when he felt something was wrong in the second quarter.

"I just told them where I was at and how I felt and moving forward what the smart thing would be," said Matthews, who was injured in the second quarter when he forced his second fumble of the game.


why couldn't he be "smarter about hamstring issues" 2 years ago?

He's two years older and wiser.

Hamstring injuries suck and never go away. Its unfortunate because I can see the same fate meeting Burnett and Hayward in future seasons. The good thing is that I don't think there has been a season where Clay has been out more than once in the past and we were lucky to have it fall on the early bye week this season.

Why aren't the Packers as an organization smarter about hamstring issues?
If an individual player can be smarter, it would seem to follow that the whole organization could be smarter.

What do they mean "smarter" anyway? Taking himself out at first twinge before it got worse?

I've had a hamstring pull and several strains over the last 25 or so years, and that's not really the way it works. The original event - the twinge or worse - is the peak of the curve if you were to graph the injury. It takes disgustingly long to go away, and if it's bad enough, it inhibits performance all while it is healing, but (and I was told this by a doctor), it isn't likely to get worse from use - if you can stand to use it. So if by "smart", Clay meant he knew he was going to be less effective than his replacement, then yeah, he was smart to take himself out. But if by "smart" he thought he was preventing a worse hamstring injury by coming out at first twinge, nope. that's basically incorrect.

His tampon started to chafe so he took himself out.

Nonstopdrivel (22-Feb) : should have done*
Zero2Cool (21-Feb) : Hi 😊😉
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : I guess I should have did a refresh when I walked away from the computer.
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : Peters is 25 with one year left on his contract at just over $3M
Zero2Cool (21-Feb) : Mel Kiper sticks with Marcus Davenport to GB in 2nd mock
Zero2Cool (21-Feb) : As for Marcus Peters, how old is he an what's his contract years left?
Zero2Cool (21-Feb) : Packers got tired of Sitton's antics.
Zero2Cool (21-Feb) : Sitton was released not because of play or salary, but personality. He will not be re-signed.
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : If we are planning on possibly cutting Cobb I can see the 2nd round pick. A second round pick for Peters is a pretty good deal.
Smokey (21-Feb) : I'd offer Cobb + a 3rd round pick + a 6th round pick in 2019 for the CB Peters from KC.
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : I guess that is a highter round pick
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : Suggestion was a 2nd round pick. I would want a lower round pick. I think that is too much. A 3rd or 4th seems about right.
Smokey (21-Feb) : Cobb and WHAT PICK ?
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : A suggestion I saw was a trade of Cobb and a Pick for Peters. I think that would be a great move.
Smokey (21-Feb) : Sitton was drafted be GB in 2008, not a young man at this point, but still is a "bear" of a man.
Cheesey (21-Feb) : Sitton? Maybe if the price is right.
Cheesey (21-Feb) : I doubt the Packers would try to resign Sutton. But who knows? If the price is right?
Zero2Cool (20-Feb) : Bears declining option on Josh Sitton. He'll be Free Agent.
Zero2Cool (20-Feb) : Chiefs CB Marcus Peters trade rumors -- come to Packers!
Smokey (20-Feb) : Join us in Packershome and be part of the discussion today .
