Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews was forced to watch the final minutes of his team's 19-7 loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday from the sidelines. It's still unclear whether or not the groin injury he suffered will force him to remain there for next week's game.

Matthews hurt himself trying to sidestep a cut block by Lions wide receiver Golden Tate. On Monday, he was still unsure about what the injury means for his status going forward.

“It’s hard to answer that right now,” Matthews said, via and Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk. “Obviously I think it’s something I can play with, but you’ve got to make sure you’re operating at a high level. That will be the biggest obstacle, not obstacle but thing to find out, and I think we’ll know more on Wednesday or Thursday.”

Injuries have kept Matthews out of the Packers' lineup for nine games over the past two seasons and Green Bay's defense has struggled to replace him when he's unavailable. If he's forced out of action for an extended period of time, the Packers will be forced to scramble once again to fill the void he leaves behind.
