GREEN BAY, Wis. – The Green Bay Packers expect star linebacker Clay Matthews to play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.
Matthews is probable for the game, Green Bay's first on the road in nearly a month.
The Packers had their customary day off from practice Friday, but they estimated Matthews would have been a limited participant.
Matthews, whose switch to inside linebacker the last two games has been a boon for a previously struggling defense, has been dealing with a recurring groin injury. Matthews said Thursday he was a little sore after Green Bay's 53-20 rout of Philadelphia last Sunday.
