Clay Matthews Played Part Of The 2010 Season With A Broken Leg
In an otherwise uneventful Tuesday in the National Football League, linebacker Clay Matthews casually mentioned to Green Bay Press-Gazette reporter Rob Demovsky that he played the second half of last season with a broken leg.
While answering a question about how the loss of Cullen Jenkins will affect him this season, Matthews revealed the injury news.
“I also had a stress fracture in four of those games (that Jenkins also missed),” Matthews said. “But nobody knows that. I had a stress fracture in my leg. A sore shin as you guys call it, but that’s all right. Obviously, I’m not making excuses.”
NFL injury reports are often underreported or even misreported throughout the season – just ask Bill Belichick – and it should come as no surprise that Packers coach Mike McCarthy is no different than 31 other coaches when listing players on the injury report.
