    Re: Clay Matthews suffers broken thumb



    Must have been a nasty break to need surgery. I didn't wish it on him, but it's a break he won't play.

    Re: Clay Matthews suffers broken thumb

    The injury was a Bennett fracture. That's why he needed surgery and can't play. It's actually quite a serious injury which will result in severe damage to the hand's function and intractable osteoarthritis if not treated correctly. One of those soft casts like what Ellerbe had on his hand wouldn't cut it, because the two fragments of bone need to be immobilized completely to prevent the articular surface from rotating out of position and remaining like that for the rest of his life. Check out this Wikipedia link. I found it very interesting. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bennett's_fracture. According to this, thumb function makes up 50% of the hand's function. Not something you would want to mess with.

    Brad Jones is pretty decent, but AJ Hawk is just average. Significant loss for them.

    We'll need all the help we can get. GB could make our secondary look helpless.

    I would argue the opposite as well. Especially with Stokley, Marlon, and possibly Jacoby returning.

    Major loss for sure but the Packers do not blitz often. They are a 3-4 so in nickel or dime you'll probably see 4-5 rushers. When they do blitz it's as often from a CB as a LB. With the LB health it would probably come from the CBs.
    Packers will move Nick Perry (265) will move to Clay's spot and Mike Neal (275) will move to LOLB. Matthews is superb against the run but that makes for a pretty stout front 5 for Green Bay.

    Thanks for this post, you just saved me a bunch of time!

    (Obligatory) Hate to see injuries, but.....

    At the end of the day, all that counts is the, 'W' and if it betters the Ravens chances to winning the game with GB players out, then so be it. No one at the end of the season will discount a win due to injuries.

    Still hate the fact the Ravens dropped the ball in Buffalo.

    Well the football gods don't totally hate us. Sucks for the Pack and fans, but with our oline issues, this will at least make the contest even (ish).
