Linebacker Clay Matthews spoke to reporters on Wednesday about a shin injury with which he played in 2010.
“I’ve never been a big guy to talk about my injuries or myself. I’m all healed up now and, hopefully, I can stay healthy,” he said.
The injury was listed on the Packers’ injury report but the severity of it was unknown until Matthews revealed this week that he was playing on a stress fracture in his lower leg. NFL rules require that teams reveal the part of the player’s body that is injured; details of the injury are not required.
“I was out there on Sundays and I was good enough to play. It was fine by the time the postseason rolled around,” Matthews said.
Matthews finished second to Steelers safety Troy Polamalu in defensive player of the year voting.
