Green Bay - If this were 2010, Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy probably would have been delivering far worse news about star linebacker Clay Matthews than he did Monday.
In a season wrought with injury, McCarthy was at least able to say that a hamstring injury Matthews suffered against Arizona Sunday would only sideline him "a couple of weeks."
Whether that's two or three or four, McCarthy wouldn't say.
"The early diagnosis, it may be a couple weeks, but we won't know until we get further into this," McCarthy said Monday. "I know Clay doesn't feel as bad as it was in the past. Obviously, we'll know more when I'm standing here next week."
Matthews has had problems with his left hamstring dating to his rookie season. He needed 19 days to recover from a pull suffered in training camp in '09 and 24 days to recover from a pull in training camp in '10.
Of the two games he has missed during his four years in the NFL, one was due to a hamstring pull he suffered against Washington in Week 5.
