If you want to take a less controversial position, you could say that the Packers defense is worse when linebacker Clay Matthews isn’t in the lineup. "I look for Clay to play and make an impact in the game." Matthews practiced the last three days without incident. Matthews has been listed as probable by the Packers and Mike Vandermause of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports that coach Mike McCarthy said he expects Matthews to make an impact against Chicago. Capers and McCarthy both suggested Matthews could have his playing time limited against Chicago. "Potentially," McCarthy said. "It's different speed when you're out there at game speed, but I think he's had a good week of practice building up, so I'm anxious to see him out there playing," defensive coordinator Dom Capers said.
