Report: Matthews to miss at least a month
by WDJT Sports

GREEN BAY - Clay Matthews is expected to miss at least a month with a broken thumb, according to reports by ESPN's Adam Schefter and the website

Matthews fractured his thumb during a sack of Matthew Stafford in Sunday's win over the Lions.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy says he doesn't know how long Matthews will be out, but McCarthy is "hopeful" it's not a season ending injury.

Matthews also missed the second half of Green Bay's loss to Cincinnati with a hamstring injury.

The team put Robert Francois on injured reserve Monday.
