             === Packers' Matthews could miss a 'couple weeks' ===
 
 Green  Bay,  WI (Sports Network)  - Green  Bay Packers All-Pro linebacker Clay
 Matthews  could  miss a couple of  weeks with a hamstring injury, according to
 head coach Mike McCarthy.
 
 Matthews left in the third quarter of Sunday's win over the Arizona Cardinals.
 He  was able to  limp to the sideline and eventually into the locker room, but
 was unable to return.
 
 "Early diagnosis is it may be a couple of weeks," McCarthy. "Clay doesn't feel
 it's as bad as it was in the past."
 
 Matthews  joins a  long list  of Packers  looking to  benefit from  the team's
 upcoming bye week.
 
 Wide  receiver  Jordy Nelson, who  sat out in Week  8 with a hamstring injury,
 suffered a sprained ankle on Sunday.
 
 "I think he's going to be OK," McCarthy said of his team's leading receiver.
 
 Right tackle Brian Bulaga also exited on Sunday with a hip injury.
 
 Green  Bay is also  dealing with injuries to key players such as wide receiver
 Greg  Jennings (groin), safety Charles Woodson (collarbone) and cornerback Sam
 Shields (ankle), all of whom were inactive in Week 9.
