Clay Matthews? Not This Week, Bub!
It’s Wednesday and the Green Bay Packers have already ruled outside linebacker Clay Matthews out of this week’s game with the Detroit Lions.
Bad news for you. Good news for the Leos.
Matthews injured a hamstring before the Packers bye against Arizona. The Packers put Matthews through tests early this week and he obviously didn’t pass.
So now what?
The Packers will go with Erik Walden and either Dezman Moses or Frank Zombo in the starting lineup. Moses, who’s actually been on the active roster all season, would seem to have the advantage. However, Zombo is a former starter and should see plenty of playing time.
Monty McMahon is one of the founders of Total Packers. He is probably the most famous graduate of UW-Oshkosh next to Jim Gantner.
