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.

Description: Green Bay's top linebacker Clay Matthews is doubtful for Sunday's game against Chicago after apparently re-breaking his thumb while sacking Ben Roethlisberger.
Insight: The Packers' linebacker corps has been decimated by injuries this season and without Mathews they will have a tough time slowing the Bears offense. Add value to running back Matt Forte, Jay Cutler and his receivers.
 
11/10/2013 12:01:00 PM
