Clay Matthews notches sack in Week 2 win vs. Jets
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Packers linebacker Clay Matthews recorded five total tackles and a sack in his team's 31-24 win over the Jets in Week 2.

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.

Clay Matthews looking to prove his durability
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews has played a full season just once, as a rookie in 2009. After missing seven games last year with a fractured thumb and half of another game with a hamstring injury, Matthews is under the gun in 2014.

"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."

Clay Matthews says it's thumbs up for training camp
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Packers linebacker Clay Matthews said he's diligently rehabbing his injured thumb, comparing it to a torn ACL rather than a typical bone break. As part of the injury he also had surgery on his forearm, which got damaged when he re-injured the thumb late last season. But he told USA Today that he'll be ready for the start of training camp, though he'll miss offseason workouts.

Clay Matthews: Thumb injury won't linger
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews, who broke his right thumb twice in 2013, said the injury won't hamper him in 2014.

“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.

"It’s just been a pain because obviously you look at it, it’s just a broken thumb. But it’s such an aggravating injury for a pass-rusher, especially in the manner in which I did it twice and having to have it surgically repaired twice, it doesn’t make it for an easy offseason in recovery.” 

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