Matthews (ankle) has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Matthews continues to deal with both ankle and hamstring injuries, and he won't be available for the Packers on Sunday after failing to practice throughout the week. Veteran pass-rusher Julius Peppers figures to see additional time with Matthews sidelined.
Matthews (ankle) is questionable to play on Sunday against the Lions, ESPN reports.
Matthews is currently nursing injuries to both his ankle and hamstring, and consequently didn't practice this week. However, he will reportedly test his physical condition during the Packers' workout on Saturday to determine his status for Week 3.
Matthews was able to finish the game on Sunday, so his absence Wednesday likely served as a precautionary measure. The stud linebacker has two sacks thus far into the 2016 campaign.
Matthews injured his left ankle during Sunday's loss at Minnesota, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. "It's hard to tell from the game, but yeah, I think someone rolled up on it pretty good," Matthews said. "I was able to get through the game. It's obviously sore now. Battle through it, hopefully it progresses through the week."
After a first-quarter play in which Letroy Guion seemed to roll up on Matthews' legs, the pass rusher missed only one play as his left ankle was taped up. Matthews later took himself out of the contest for the final two minutes following a tackle of Minnesota RB Matt Asiata, never to return. As the week unfolds, the Packers will be sure to exercise the utmost caution in advance of Sunday's divisional matchup with the Lions.
