GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Green Bay Packers’ coach Mike McCarthy said All-Pro linebacker Clay Matthews will be out for a “couple of weeks” with a hamstring injury suffered in Sunday’s win over Arizona.
McCarthy didn’t say – but there appears to be a chance that Matthews will miss the Packers’ next game on November 18th at Detroit.
The Packers are on their bye week – and McCarthy said the team will not be totally healthy when it returns to practice a week from Monday.
Matthews said his injury is apparently not as bad as hamstring problems he’s had at each training camp until this year.
McCarthy said right tackle Bryan Bulaga is having more tests on the hip injury he suffered yesterday – and he’s not sure how severe it is. The coach said receiver Jordy Nelson, who hurt an ankle Sunday just a week-and-a-half after he hurt a hamstring, will be fine.
