Packers linebacker Clay Matthews will miss Sunday's game against the New York Giants because of his hamstring injury, the team confirmed Friday.
Matthews, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, missed last week's win over the Detroit Lions and didn't practice Friday. Packers coach Mike McCarthy listed Matthews as doubtful earlier this week.
The Packers would love to have Matthews available against the Giants, but they'll have to wait at least another week before he returns to the gridiron. Matthews has dealt with off-and-on hamstring problems for years, but the Packers are eager to get him back on the field. Source: NFL.com Attached Thumbnails

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It's been 49 weeks since Packers offensive tackle Derek Sherrod broke his right leg last season in Kansas City.

Week 12: Green Bay Packers vs. New York Giants
This Week’s Pick
Green Bay Packers
The Packers are on a five game winning streak but are wounded. The Giants are not playing their best ball right now. I think the game is close for an entire 60 minutes and call me crazy, but I think Mason Crosby ...
Pro Bowl wide receiver Greg Jennings practiced for the second consecutive day with the Green Bay Packers, albeit on a limited basis. His involvement, however, increased from jumping in for a few drills at the start of practice Wednesday to doing at least a little in everything Thursday. “(I) got a little scout-team work in there as well to get my wind up underneath me,” Jennings...

He hasn’t played since Week 6. Rookie Casey Hayward has acquitted himself well in Shields’ absence.
Hayward has 5 interceptions on the season, to include a forced fumble. ...
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers again have a defense that they believe can win games for them."You know, last year, there weren't many games where you'd say that," Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers said. "Of course, our offense was playing so well, it was such a different scenario."This year, the Aaron Rodgers-led offense isn't...
Running back Cedric Benson of the Green Bay Packers said Wednesday it's still possible that he will need foot surgery, which would end his first season with the team. Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports.
Benson has an appointment scheduled later in the month with Robert Anderson, a foot and ankle specialist in Charlotte, N.C.
"It's still a lingering...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The last time the Packers and New York Giants met, all the positive moments from Green Bay's nearly perfect 15-1 regular season became relatively meaningless.
The 37-20 playoff beatdown Eli Manning helped deliver on a cold mid-January afternoon at Lambeau Field continued another improbable postseason run for New York that concluded with Peyton's little...
Clay Matthews will miss a second consecutive game because of an injured hamstring while Greg Jennings, three weeks off surgery, practiced again and has a chance to play on Sunday night against the Giants.
As a grown adult male who has never been able to grow sufficient facial hair, I don’t typically handle news involving mustaches and beards very well, but if that news creates the opportunity to rank celebrity mustaches and/or beards then I can live with it. In this case, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers appeared on Jim Rome’s new show on Showtime Wednesday night and Romey asked...
What did the Packers accomplish against Detroit on Sunday that they've done only rarely under coach Mike McCarthy and Aaron Rodgers? "There’s definitely something we can draw from," McCarthy said, looking ahead to a stretch run that could culminate with a berth in the rugged NFC playoffs.
The New York Giants will host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night football at MetLife Stadium from East Rutherford, NJ.
Game starts at 8:20 pm on NBC (TV) and WFAN (Radio).
Giants favorites over Packers.
Spread is - 2.5 points.
My pick is the Packers.
