Description: Packers linebacker Clay Matthews had surgery to repair his broken thumb on Dec. 27.
Insight: He didn't play in Week 17 and there's a good chance we won't see him again this season regardless of how far the Packers make it. Matthews is the best defensive player on the Packers' roster and his absence leaves a big hole in their defense.
