LB Clay Matthews did not return to the practice field on Wednesday, and Mike McCarthy labeled him as “doubtful” for this week. Matthews missed last week’s game in Detroit with a hamstring injury, and if Matthews can’t play this week, it would mark the first time in his four-year career that he will miss consecutive games.
In other injury news, CB Sam Shields (ankle) has already been ruled out, and McCarthy said it could be a couple more weeks yet for Shields, who will miss his fifth straight game this week.
“He’s not making the improvement we hoped,” McCarthy said. “It’s a little more serious injury than we anticipated.”
“It’s frustrating,” Shields said. “I’ve just got to keep my mind positive, keep getting in rehab and trying to get better to get back out on the field to get ready for the stretch down the road.”
