Oregon LB Casey Matthews, the younger brother of Packers standout LB Clay Matthews, will miss the rest of the NFL combine after injuring his shoulder during Saturday’s bench press, according to’s Steve Wyche.

Though he’s not the athletic specimen his brother is, ranks him as the seventh-best inside LB in the draft (and No. 162 overall).

Matthews obviously has good name recognition, but he really made a case for himself during the 2011 BCS championship game when he impacted QB Cam Newton’s ability to make plays and stripped him of the ball late in the game.

One potential knock on Matthews is that he played in a defensive system at Oregon in which he blitzed a ton, probably inflating his sack numbers. Not that a wonderful NFL combine would have dashed that negative, but still, it has to be disappointing for a LB who could be selected on the second day of the Draft.

Casey Matthews out for rest of NFL combine

Casey looks so much like his father. Both are aggressive defensive players. Both have long shoulder length hair. Best of luck to to both of them. I heard Clay suffered a serious injury in the Super Bowl. I hope it is not another concussion.
