Morning roundup: Packers prepare to play without Matthews

Nov. 15, 2012
 

Coach Mike McCarthy ruled out Clay Matthews for the Packers' game Sunday against Detroit, which is only their second game against an NFC North Division rival this season.

Pete Dougherty has story looking at the impact of the loss of Matthews, the Packers' best defensive player, for at least one game and perhaps more of Matthews: http://tinyurl.com/cw3atk3

The Packers will see a new wrinkle from the Lions, who in recent weeks have been using extensively a jumbo package that features rookie tackle Riley Reiff as a fullback or tight end: http://tinyurl.com/cmol27l

Rob Demovsky's notebook lead says the Packers might be hesitant to take rookie cornerback Casey Hayward out of the starting lineup even if former starter Sam Shields is able to return from an ankle injury this week: http://tinyurl.com/a5ayv3h
