It may have been presumed to be inevitable, the Green Bay Packers made it official on Wednesday––linebacker Clay Matthews has already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.
Matthews broke his thumb this past weekend in the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the same thumb he broke in early October and kept him our for four games at midseason.
The Packers didn't practice on Wednesday because of the Christmas holiday, but Matthews was listed as out on the team's injury report, an approximation of each player's practice status.
In addition, quarterback Aaron Rodgers was listed as limited, while five players were said not to take part at all: running back Eddie Lacy, linebackers Nick Perry, Brad Jones and Mike Neal and defensive lineman Ryan Pickett.
