Clay Matthews waiting to see how Uncle Bruce schemes against him

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 20, 2012 – 2:27 pm

LB Clay Matthews is the Packers’ best pass rusher. His uncle, Bruce Matthews, is the Tennessee Titans offensive line coach.

It won’t be the same for Clay as going head-to-head on the field against Bruce, a Hall of Fame offensive lineman, but this is about as close as it gets.

“It’s going to be exciting,” the younger Matthews said on Thursday in the Packers’ locker room. “It’s one of those things you think about but you never think it’s going to come to fruition.”

Matthews said he talks with his uncle here and there during the season, but their conversations have stopped this week, understandably so. Matthews leads the Packers with 11 sacks, and his uncle is in charge of keeping Tennessee QB Jake Locker upright on Sunday at Lambeau Field.

“It will be interesting to see what they do, if they give a little extra help over there, or if he wants to leave me one on one,” Matthews said. “Ultimately, I’ll have some choice words for him after the game.”

Another Matthews, Kevin — who is Clay’s cousin and Bruce’s son — had been starting at center for the Titans but injured his ankle this past week and likely will miss the game. So the two cousins probably won’t be on the same field together for the first time as pros.

Matthews returned to action last week after a four-game absence due to a hamstring injury, and he was no worse for wear. He recorded two sacks plus two other tackles for loss and deflected a pass in coverage.

“I’m happy to have gotten through the game with no setbacks,” he said. “I’m looking forward to a new week, not only building up physical strength but knocking the rust off. I feel good overall.”
