Packers' Matthews out a month with broken thumbSubmitted: 10/07/2013
Story By ESPN.com

GREEN BAY - Green Bay Packers star linebacker Clay Matthews is expected to miss one month with a broken thumb, a league source told ESPN.

Matthews suffered the injury in Sunday's victory over the Detroit Lions.

According to multiple sources on Twitter Monday night, Matthews had a successful surgery.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy would not disclose any information regarding Matthews' injury but said he hopes the four-time Pro Bowler will not miss the rest of the season.


"I'm hopeful it's not season-ending," McCarthy said Monday. "I think we're all hopeful, but you have to get all the opinions and make sure you always do right by the player."

Matthews was injured on the final play of the third quarter when he sacked Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford for a 12-yard loss. Matthews rushed off the edge and was unblocked on the play, which was his final snap of the game.
