(SportsNetwork.com) - Green Bay Packers star linebacker Clay Matthews could
miss a month of action with a broken thumb, according to ESPN.com.
Matthews suffered the injury in Sunday's victory over the Detroit Lions.
"Clay Matthews' injury situation, he's actually in an appointment and all the
information's not in yet," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Monday afternoon.
McCarthy also said that the injury occurred on the final play of the third
quarter, when Matthews sacked Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford for a 12-yard
loss. Matthews headed to the locker room shortly after the play.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said that all indications point to Matthews
needing surgery on the thumb.
Matthews has 18 tackles and three sacks in four games this season. The USC
product had 43 tackles and 13 sacks in 12 games last year.
