Packers linebacker Clay Matthews exited Sunday's win over the Lions with a thumb injury. Per a league source, the thumb has a fracture in it. Matthews left Sunday's 22-9 win over the Lions in the fourth quarter.  It's unclear whether the injury will limit Matthews' ability to practice or play. The Packers travel to Baltimore...

Didn't our soon to be Hall of Fame QB play 3/4 of a season with a broken thumb, albeit a pretty poor performance? If Clay sits out with a broken thumb, he'll have to stop doing those predator dances.

A stress fracture is different from a complete snapped off bone or a crushed bone.

Hopefully they can put a club on him, but I think the level of severity could be a factor.

Heard he might need surgery.

The way this team reports injuries the whole arm is probably amputated.

Wasn't Nick Colins head amputated too? :3

I bet Clay could play with one arm

Well it would be harder for him to strip Adrian Peterson so he can run it back for a touchdown. Big Grin

Did anybody see him after on the sidelines - how bad off he looked? Anybody know if it's his right or left hand - and which-handed he is? It makes a difference performance-wise. I would think anything short of a really mangled compound fracture, and he could postpone any surgery until after the season and play with some kind of a soft cast. I don't think they allow those "clubs" like in the good old days.

Hopefully they don't chop off the wrong arm the first time.

He'd be able to punch it out better.

I know that they do allow it actually. The Redskins had a defensive lineman with a club. I believe it was Barry Cofield.

You're correct. Sean Lee of the Cowboys played with one two years ago.

But maybe this injury could have been avoided if Matthews stretched a little bit more before the game...

Morgan Burnett had a club last year, did he not?

The real problem is, with a broken thumb, will Clay still be able to inject himself?

Didn't Perry play with a club some last year, too, before he went on IR? It's pretty common, it seems.

One month as per Schefter.

That's not too bad, hope it's true.

Packers LB Clay Matthews still is undergoing more testing, but he is expected to miss one month with a broken thumb

Apparently it's a bad break.

Might need surgery or something.

We got by for 4 games last year without Clay, and at that time our backups were Walden and Moses. If we could do that last year, we can get by this year with Neal and Perry.

None of the next 4 teams are real offensive powerhouses either. Season ain't over.

Last year I think we went 3-1.

We had what, 4 LBs get injured in one game? And that's not that out of the ordinary lately. We're fine unless Neal or Perry goes down.

Correct, the Packers went 3-1 without Matthews last season and I am unsure of who those games were against. The Packers next 4 opponents are Ravens, Browns, Vikings and Bears. With the exception of the Bears, we could see another 3-1 stretch, maybe 4-0.

I think taking the 4 week break is fine. I'd prefer to have Matthews healthy for the home stretch into the playoffs than put something over the broken bone and potentially injure himself further. Aside from Burnett, the other guys mentioned are expendable to put a cast on and play, Matthews is not. Also, every fracture or break is different.

I posted it in live chat yesterday and will say it again.

Sure am glad The Packers get The Browns at Lambeau.

The Browns D, if they don't lose anyone to injury this week, will be the toughest defense The Packers have faced this year.

With Hoyer going down for the year, The Browns are back to Wheeden(sp?), he came in 10 days ago and preformed well leading the team to a win over The Bengals.

Then last Thursday, was a game manager, didn't do anything to lose the game, and The Browns Defense shut down the Bills.

Browns are a different team on the road, but they are just young and nieve enough to think they belong, especially if they win this coming week.

Don't underestimate them.
