The Green Bay Packers have their work cut out for them if they are going to still make the playoffs, as they can't lose another game.
Their defense just took a hit though as Clay Matthews was just seen on the sidelines with an apparent leg injury.

Matthews has dealt with plenty of injuries in the past, but was in the midst of his first healthy season in a long time.
If Packers fans want to blame anyone for this injury, look no further then local reporter Ryan Rodig.
Asked Clay Matthews this week how he's been able to stay so healthy this season and he replied sarcastically "because I'm awesome" then said he didn't want to talk about it. Just limped off the field. Blame me I guess #Packers— Ryan Rodig (@ryanrodigwfrv) December 2, 2018
He was jinxed!
Matthews clearly knew that he should not talk about injuries and he was proved right as soon as he exited the field with one today.
It looks like Matthews will try to play through the pain though as his ankle was seen being tapped on the sideline.

We will see if he can still play at a high level and if the Packers can hold to beat the Cardinals and keep their season alive.
