Matthews delivered seven-and-a-half sacks in 11 games last season but was held off the scoreboard in Week 1 against the Seahawks, though he did manage a forced fumble in his team's opening-week loss. He'll look to keep Matthew Stafford uncomfortable in the team's Week 3 battle with the Lions.

"He has to show that he can line up and stay healthy," linebackers coach Winston Moss told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
Matthews said during OTAs that he's "feeling good."
"It's been a long offseason obviously with the surgeries and the rehab and the physical therapy and all that," he said. 'But it's definitely coming along. ... I don't see there being any hindrance toward the beginning of the season, toward camp. We'll keep getting stronger and hopefully by that time be ready to roll."
“It’s been doing well," Matthews said in a radio interview, per ESPN.com. "I’ve been getting physical therapy three times a week. I’ve been able to work out with a few limitations, but from talking with the doctors there shouldn’t be any limitations once next season rolls around.

Matthews was held to 7.5 sacks in 11 games last season.
