140811-matthews-news-now-300GREEN BAY–Monday’s practice provided even more evidence Clay Matthews’ right thumb is, indeed, getting stronger, as the star linebacker participated in spirited half-line drills. Matthews set the edge on one particular play by authoring possibly the loudest thump of the drill.

It was one of the longest half-line periods of training camp, in a practice that was especially dedicated to the running game. It even featured a brief skirmish.

Safety Morgan Burnett was back in full gear. Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams, Joe Thomas, Rajion Neal and Josh Boyd did not practice.

Packers.com will provide a “News now!” report from Coach Mike McCarthy’s post-practice press conference.
