Friday practice report: Still no Matthews

Nov. 23, 2012
 

The Packers were still without outside linebacker Clay Matthews during the portion of practice open to the media on Friday.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said earlier this week Matthews was "doubtful" to play in Sunday's game against the New York Giants after his more recent hamstring flare-up, but the team has yet to rule him out.

If Matthews can't go, expect the team to revert to the platoon of Dezman Moses and Frank Zombo to fill the three-time Pro Bowler's void. Packers coach Mike McCarthy is scheduled to meet with the media at 1 p.m. Central Time with status updates for Sunday.

Defensive backs Charles Woodson (collarbone) and Sam Shields (ankle) were the only two active players not practicing aside from Matthews, but both have already been ruled out for Sunday.

Wide receiver Greg Jennings (groin, abdomen) was participating throughout the entirety of the 30-plus minutes of practice available to the media. He's three weeks removed from surgery to repair a core muscle injury.
