The shoulder injury that has bothered Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews the last few weeks doesn't seem to be a big problem on Saturday against the Minnesota Vikings.
The long-haired linebacker has come up with some big plays in the first half against Minnesota, including this strip-sack of Sam Bradford late in the second quarter. Click here for the video.
Matthews also has two pass deflections and another pressure for the Packers, who leading by 15 points early in the third quarter.
Matthews has been limited since hurting his left shoulder following a blind-side block by Philadelphia offensive lineman Allen Barbre in a win last month over the Eagles.
The linebacker said at midweek that he was feeling better and hoped to play more this week. Matthews is getting more snaps this week and looking like his old big-play self.
