Packers don't 'feel very good' about Clay Matthews' injury

Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews left Sunday's game against the Steelers after reinjuring his right thumb. And now it appears unlikely Matthews will suit up in the regular-season finale against the Bears that will decide the NFC North champion.

"The training staff didn't feel very good about the injury," coach Mike McCarthy said Monday. "So we're still working through the process."

Matthews, who has been named to the Pro Bowl four times and has 7.5 sacks this season, was injured when he tackled Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for career sack No. 50.

Meanwhile, there's no word on Aaron Rodgers' status; the quarterback has missed the previous seven games will recovering from a broken collarbone.

And McCarthy will wait until later in the week to see if rookie running back Eddie Lacy, who aggravated his sprained right ankle in Sunday's loss, will be available.

"Eddie, he's sore, which he has been pretty much the whole season," the coach said. "We're not going to practice on the field until Thursday, so I'll probably have a better feel for where he's at [then]."
