"Just speaking with him, he doesn't have high concern," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. Matthews was listed as limited on the injury report on Wednesday due to his groin. He injured himself in the fourth quarter against the Lions, and did not play late in the game due to the issue.
Coach Mike McCarthy told ESPN.com that Matthews "doesn't have high concern" about the injury. Green Bay visits Minnesota on Sunday.
The Packers defense was gashed by the Bears running game in the teams' first meeting, and coach Mike McCarthy responded by putting his best pass rusher on the inside of the defense. The plan worked to perfection, as the Packers managed to rack up four sacks and six quarterback hits while holding Bears running back Matt Forte to 3.2 yards per carry on his 17 rushing attempts.
It's possible the Packers could continue the experiment of playing Matthews at inside linebacker after Sunday's success, and such a move would be a boon for his tackle totals. Green Bay's next challenge comes against the Eagles in Week 11.
