Clay Matthews (quadriceps) was a full participant at practice Friday and is probable for Sunday's game against the Rams.
There was some concern Thursday when Matthews was listed as a limited participant on the team's injury report, however that concern should dissipate quickly considering Matthews was not held up at all during practice Friday. While nothing has been confirmed, it seems likely Matthews will be able to play Sunday against the Rams.
Clay Matthews (quadriceps) was limited at Thursday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Matthews commenced preparation for Week 5 with a full practice Wednesday, but his practice reps were capped Thursday. While the move may have been precautionary, his status should be monitored in order to ensure he can add to the 14 tackles (12 solo), including three sacks, and one interception Sunday against the Rams.
Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews totaled two tackles (both solo) and a sack in Sunday's victory over the 49ers.
Matthews was quiet in the tackle department, but he did record his third sack in two games. He continues to play both inside and outside linebacker for a Packers defense that ranks in the top 10 in the NFL in yards allowed per game through four weeks.
Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews tallied three tackles (all solo) and two sacks in Monday's victory over the Kansas City Chiefs .
Matthews, who is seeing extensive action at inside linebacker for the Packers, recorded his first two sacks of the season Monday night. He has made 12 tackles (10 solo) through three games in 2015.
Matthews has been sitting out since Aug. 1, but could play next Thursday in the preseason opener against New England.
"This is probably the best I've felt this entire offseason," he said. "I was able to do the entire offseason program, put in my work back home, and just kind of within the first couple practices started having some soreness. ... I think we're just being more precautious and smart than anything else."
The Packers prefer to be safe with Matthews, who has averaged more than 10 sacks a season since joining the NFL in 2009.
