Clay Matthews: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Matthews, who underwent right thumb surgery prior to Week 17, has already been ruled out for the Packers' playoff opener, FOXSports.com reports. Said coach Mike McCarthy, "Right now he's out for this week, and that's really what we're focused on...I really don't have a feel for Clay, as far as where he is. I really haven't even seen him to talk to him. You're always cautious with players after surgery. That's why he didn't travel with the team [to Chicago for the regular-season finale]."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

2012

Matthews registered just six sacks in 2011 and saw constant double-teams. The Packers drafted almost exclusively defense and hope that will free him up a bit more. He doesn't rack up big tackle numbers so his value takes a big hit if he isn't getting sacks.

2011

Matthews has the look of the rare 3-4 outside linebacker with the ability to provide both tackle and sack production. Matthews finished his 15-game regular season in 2010 with 60 tackles (54 solo), 13.5 sacks, an interception returned for a touchdown and two forced fumbles. He needs to show even more production in the tackle department if heís going to rise up the rankings, but Matthews has the look of a player who isnít done improving. Heís clearly one of the best 3-4 outside linebackers available this year.

2010

Matthews had a tremendous rookie season in 2009, recording 50 tackles and 10 sacks. He should get more playing time in 2010, but will also see more double teams. The Packers will need to find a rushing complement or his production might suffer.
