The hits just keep right on coming for the Green Bay Packers. Starting inside linebacker Blake Martinez will miss multiple weeks.
#Packers ILB Blake Martinez (MCL sprain) is expected to miss multiple games, source said. 4th-rounder has started 9 games.
The Packers were already missing Jake Ryan in the middle of their defense and he appears doubtful to play this week. They have just two other inside linebackers on the roster — Joe Thomas and Carl Bradford. The latter was just promoted from the practice squad on Saturday.
Now you have to wonder if the Packers will consider moving Clay Matthews back inside.
He was asked about the possibility after Ryan went down and appeared dead set against it. Thomas started in place of Ryan in Washington and now it appears the Packers are one more injury away from not having any other choice than to move Matthews inside.
It isn’t as if he’s playing so well at outside linebacker. In his first game back after missing four weeks with a hamstring injury, Matthews registered just one tackle on Sunday.
