Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews is hoping that his presence on the defensive side of the ball will help the team slow down the Philadelphia Eagles. Matthews is returning from a hand injury, but it will be protected with a club on his right hand to ensure no additional damage is done.
That’s right, Matthews will be weaponized for today’s Week 10 match up.
Here is another refresher of Matthews with the club on his hand:

Of course, this will seriously affect Matthew’s ability to wrap up players that are just within reach and you shouldn’t expect to see him hauling in any interceptions this week, but his presence will still provide a big boost for the Packers defense thanks to his awareness and leadership ability.
