Green Bay Packers rule out Clay Matthews vs Titans

Last Sunday, the Green Bay Packers lost to the Indianapolis Colts which meant they had missed out on a big opportunity to go to the top of the NFC North.

This was the second chance the Packers had missed to climb to the top of the division, as they lost to the Atlanta Falcons the week before.

The common trend between these two games? Green Bay played without their star linebacker Clay Matthews, and according to reports, they're going to have to do the same this Sunday.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the 30-year-old will miss the Packers' game against the Tennessee Titans due to a hamstring injury.

This will be the third straight game the linebacker misses for Green Bay this season and his fourth absence of the year. They lost the two previous games without him, so they'll be hoping that trend doesn't continue in Tennessee.

Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota has only been sacked 12 times this season, so even with Matthews in the lineup, the Packers will likely find it difficult to apply the pressure on the young gunslinger this Sunday.

Matthews has the third most sacks for the team this season, so the Packers will be praying that he is able to come back from his hamstring injury as quickly as possible to keep their pass pressure effective and hopefully end their losing streak.
