Packers Injury Update: Matthews Still Wearing Club on Thursday

New, comments

The Packers are getting a few key players back this week, and we have photographic evidence of Clay Matthews' giant cast.

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

The Green Bay Packers practiced on Thursday, on their usual schedule for a Sunday game. As expected, Aaron Rodgers is not practicing. Now just because he hasn't been ruled out yet, that doesn't mean you can get your hopes up for him playing this weekend against the Eagles - that's not going to happen.

Here's the full injury report from today's practice:

Did Not Participate: QB Aaron Rodgers, G T.J. Lang

Limited Participation: OLB Clay Matthews, OLB Andy Mulumba, OLB Mike Neal, OLB Nick Perry, DT Ryan Pickett

Mike McCarthy said that T.J. Lang is "getting better" from his concussion, but we are assuming that if Lang doesn't practice tomorrow it's a safe bet that he will not be playing on Sunday. As for Neal, McCarthy said that he was just held out of portions of practice because he's "a little beat up", but that the coach expects him to be fine.

As for Clay Matthews, Cheesehead TV's Jayme Snowden posted a picture of him wearing the club cast on his right hand:

Yikes. For a guy who uses his hands as a tool to disengage from blockers, that's gotta be a hindrance. Hopefully Clay will be able to adjust to the cast and still be successful, since he will be going up against a solid veteran left tackle in Jason Peters this Sunday.

We'll have your final injury report tomorrow afternoon when it is announced.
