Clay Matthews to get part of his hand back this week

Packers linebacker Clay Matthews showed something he hadn’t in a while during Wednesday’s practice — his fingers.

Gone was the big protective club that he wore in last week’s game, replaced by a smaller brace that will still protect his broken thumb, but give him a little more freedom.

“Based on the doctor’s report, he’s able to now, I don’t even know what the term is,” coach Mike McCarthy said, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “I think this is a normal path. It starts to decrease each week.”

By the time he plays Sunday, he’ll be six weeks out from the original injury. Playing with a smaller brace can’t hurt, as he wasn’t particularly effective last week playing one-handed.

    I saw plays last week when CM was hand fighting the tackle with one hand, while the other hand was at or near his side. Can’t defeat these tackles with one hand. GO PACKERS GO!!!
