Clay Matthews leaves with thumb injury
By Rob Demovsky
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- For the second straight game, Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews had to leave with an injury.
On Sunday against the Detroit Lions, it was because of a thumb injury in the third quarter.
Matthews had returned on Sunday after dropping out of the Packers’ previous game in Week 3 at Cincinnati because of a hamstring injury.
He appeared to sustain his thumb injury on his third-quarter sack of Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford. Matthews was unblocked and easily dumped Stafford for a 12-yard loss.
Shortly after the play, he went to the locker room. His return was listed as questionable.
