Packers LB Clay Matthews: Plan to hit Kaepernick "hard and often"

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews says they plan to hit 49ers quarterback Collin Kaepernick hard and often.

An NFL ruling on the read option is having some on the Packers’ defense licking their chops for Sunday’s game… and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh calling the new rule “biased”.

The new rule treats a quarterback like a runner until he is clearly out of the play.

Harbaugh claims quarterbacks in a read option system get treated like a runner, even if he doesn't have the ball and reads to the running back.

Matthews told ESPN’s “Mike and Mike” on Wednesday from talking to referees, a quarterback loses protection rights when they carry out fakes, meaning the defense can hit the quarterback… making him uncomfortable.
