Packers' Clay Matthews: Expected to remain outside
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite several injuries at the inside linebacker position during training camp, Matthews "anticipates staying on the edge," according to

"There's been no talk or mention or even insinuation of me going inside," Matthews said. Matthews' natural position is as an outside linebacker, and a season of playing to his strengths would be good news for the 32-year-old veteran hoping to bounce back as a playmaker. Matthews reached four double-digit sack totals in his first six seasons, but has fallen below that mark each of the last three years. Entering the final year of his contract, playing on the edge could help Matthews bolster his sack totals and boost his value on the open market.

Packers' Clay Matthews: No long-term concerns with broken nose
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Mike McCarthy said he has no long-term concerns with Matthews' broken nose, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports

On Saturday, Matthews took a line drive to the face while pitching in a charity softball game. He'll need to undergo surgery in the near future to fix his nose, but the important thing is that he didn't suffer any trauma to his brain. Prior to the incident, Hodkiewicz reported Matthews was back at OTAs last Friday after the linebacker missed a portion of team practices in late May.

Packers' Clay Matthews: Sustains broken nose
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (knee) revealed on his personal Twitter account Saturday he suffered a broken nose and will undergo surgery once the swelling subsides.

Matthews sustained the injury during a charity softball game as he was hit in the face with a line drive while pitching. All in all, it's relatively good news for the veteran linebacker as it's unlikely to have any long-term ramifications. Matthews has been absent from voluntary OTAs as he recovers from hamstring and knee injuries, but he should hopefully be ready for the start of training camp.

Packers' Clay Matthews: Suffers nose injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (hamstring) was forced to head to the ER after getting hit in the nose by a line drive during a charity softball game Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The belief at this point in time is that Matthews just suffered a broken nose, which is a positive because the result could have been worse. The veteran linebacker was already absent from OTAs in order to nurse his hamstring, and this situation will likely keep him sidelined longer. He should still presumably be ready for training camp, but expect an update on his status once the Packers provide more clarity on the situation.

Packers' Clay Matthews: Held back with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (hamstring) didn't participate in OTAs on Tuesday, Rob Demovsky of reports.

Once healthy, Matthews will prepare to be featured at inside and outside linebacker in a move to keep offenses on their toes. With an $11.3 million cap hit in an offseason that the Packers were willing to rid themselves of excess salaries, it's a stroke of confidence in Matthews' value to this struggling unit. With four double-digit sack totals in his first six seasons, Matthews hasn't reached that mark during the last three years. The Packers signed pass rusher Muhammad Wilkerson too and bolstered their secondary, so a scheme change could be the last checkmark allow Matthews to uncork his full potential.
