Clay Matthews at full speed in first practice of camp

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on July 26, 2014 – 10:02 am

140726-matthews-300GREEN BAY–Training camp began on Saturday morning with the best possible news: Clay Matthews was a full participant.

Wearing a minimal wrap to protect his surgically repaired right thumb, Matthews was back at his familiar right outside linebacker position. He was flanked by Julius Peppers at left outside linebacker. Nick Perry, a starter at left outside linebacker the past two seasons, remained sidelined by an undisclosed injury.

Matthews had missed all of OTAs in the spring, as he rehabbed from a second surgery on the thumb. Perry was also a non-participant in the spring. Until Head Coach Mike McCarthy provides information on Perry’s injury, the former first-round pick’s condition remains a mystery. He missed much of last season with a foot injury.

Tight end Andrew Quarless, who was also sidelined in the spring, joined Matthews as a full participant on Saturday morning. In a two-tight end set with the first-team offense, Quarless was joined by rookie Richard Rodgers at tight end.

Defensive linemen Jerel Worthy and Letroy Guion, linebacker Mike Neal and rookie wide receiver Jeff Janis did not practice. Worthy was a non-participant in the spring.

Packers.com will update this morning’s practice with information from McCarthy’s post-practice press conference.
