USA TODAY Sports

Shocker: concussions and hamstrings are still in the news where the Packers are concerned.

Happy Thursday, everyone! Week 5 kicks off tonight with what will undoubtedly be a riveting game between the Buffalo Bills and the Cleveland Browns. Meanwhile, today's a big day for Clay Matthews, as we all hope he will make progress towards playing in Sunday's game against Detroit. We've got a story on that today, as well as two recently-concussed Packers players who are talking about their injuries.

If it were me, the lesson would probably be to avoid dirty safeties who lead with their helmets, but that's just me. Lacy probably will be less cynical about it.
