Packers LB Matthews back at practice

Green Bay Packers All-Pro linebacker Clay Matthews returned to practice for the first time in more than a month on Wednesday.

Matthews left in the third quarter of a Nov. 4 win over the Arizona Cardinals with a hamstring injury and hasn't played since, absent for the last four contests.

In addition, offensive lineman T.J. Lang (ankle) and defensive lineman Mike Neal (shoulder) were both able to take reps in practice despite sitting out last week.

However, wideout Jordy Nelson, who missed last Sunday's game with a hamstring injury, did not practice, nor did cornerback Charles Woodson, who is still on his way back from a broken collarbone suffered in Week 7.
