Clay Matthews ruled out for this week

Mike McCarthy announced on Wednesday that LB Clay Matthews has been ruled out and will not play in Detroit due to his hamstring injury.

“We’ll see what next week brings,” McCarthy said. He added that the team had been planning not to have Matthews this week.

Also, WR Greg Jennings (groin/abdominal) and DB Charles Woodson (collarbone) remain out, but McCarthy said both players are farther along in their rehab and workouts than expected at this point.

WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring/foot) was limited in practice, but McCarthy said he “looked like his old self” and doesn’t anticipate him having any problems playing. Nelson missed the Jacksonville game with the hamstring injury and then injured his foot and/or ankle early in the Arizona game and was taken out again.

DE Mike Neal (ankle) did not participate in practice because the ankle injury he played through against Arizona is “bothering him,” according to McCarthy, who is hoping Neal might be able to practice at some point later this week.
