It was Matthews' third multiple sack performance of the season, and the first since Oct. 11. He appears to be returning to full form since suffering ankle and knee injuries in Week 8, which he has played through all season. In the three games leading up to Sunday's victory, Matthews totaled three tackles and a sack.
Clay Matthews (ankle) is active for Sunday's contest in Arizona, Duke Bobber of the Green Bay Packers ' official site reports.
Matthews' workload topped all Packers linebackers last Sunday at Oakland, earning 72 of 77 defensive snaps, yet he failed to pick up any counting stats. Meanwhile, the Cardinals' offensive line has surrendered just 23 sacks in 14 games this season, which places another damper on Matthews' potential.
Clay Matthews (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Matthews was slowed by his ankle injury again this week, but he is set to start at middle linebacker in Week 16 like he usually does.
Matthews was slowed at practice last week by an ankle injury, but he was still able to play Sunday and record his first sack since Week 5. He is now up to 63 tackles (47 solo) and 5.5 sacks through 13 games this season.
Matthews was held without a sack for the fifth straight game, but he played a key role in shutting down Adrian Peterson and the Vikings' run game. Over the last couple weeks, Matthews has dealt with leg issues and may have tweaked something late in Sunday's contest, so don't be surprised if he lands on the injury report again leading up to Thursday's game against the Bears.
