(Eds: With AP Photos.) Kevin Greene is among those who miss not having Clay Matthews on the field for the Green Bay Packers.
Greene just doesn't want the star linebacker to be rushed back from a hamstring injury.
''I want Clay back as soon as he is 110 percent healthy,'' said Greene, the Packers' outside linebackers coach. ''I don't want him back with any chance of re-tweaking his injury because he's coming back too soon. I want him back whenever he is 110 percent, and then we plug him in and we truck on.''
The Packers (7-4) won't have Matthews for Sunday's game against NFC North rival Minnesota (6-5), listing him as out on Friday's injury report. Matthews, who leads the team with nine sacks, hasn't even been able to practice since reinjuring his left hamstring in Green Bay's win over Arizona on Nov. 4.
''Well, he's making progress, he's just not ready to play in the game,'' coach Mike Mc...

The past few games have been filled with cringing, head shaking, curse flinging, eye covering moments for Packers’ fans everywhere. These moments have been the result of the Packers’ starting kicker. Mason Crosby has been in a bit of a sump this season, and suggestions for his replacement have already surfaced. McCarthy and the rest of the team, however, are standing by their...
Packers linebacker Clay Matthews will miss his fourth consecutive game Sunday against Minnesota. He's been dealing with a hamstring issue.Fantasy Spin:Green Bay was hoping Matthews would be fully recovered but apparently he's still in some pain. This is great news for the Vikings' offense.
The Packers are in trouble this season, they have no defense or running game. This team should be a Super Bowl contender, but they have too many questions.
After an average Thanksgiving week of picks I'm sitting at 114-63. I need to step my game up as we sprint to the postseason.

For a guy who does his best work in the air, Aaron Rodgers is spending way too much time on the ground.
The reigning NFL MVP has been sacked 37 times, more than any other quarterback in the league. He's taken more hits in the first 11 games than he did all of last season (36 sacks), and is on pace to topple the career-high 50 sacks he took in 2009.
And the Green Bay Packers...
For some fans, it’s been rather frustrating to see all those Greg Jennings Old Spice commercials and not see the star receiver on the football field.
Due to a variety of injuries, it’s been since September 30th since Jennings saw live action for the Green Bay Packers.
With his expected return to the gridiron this weekend against the Minnesota Vikings, Old Spice’s official facebook...
Packers receiver Jordy Nelson left Sunday's game against Minnesota with a hamstring injury.Fantasy Spin:He's questionable to return. Green Bay has plenty of depth in the receiving corps so this injury shouldn't affect Aaron Rodgers' performance too drastically.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- For the Minnesota Vikings (6-5) to make the playoffs this season, they'll need to win at least one of their two upcoming games with the division-rival Packers (7-4). The first of those two NFC North showdowns is Sunday at Lambeau Field, with both teams' regular-season schedules concluding four weeks later in Minnesota.
