Matthews limited, Woodson sits

Two of Green Bay’s key defenders could not practice fully on Wednesday.

OLB Clay Matthews, who dominated with 3 sacks in Green Bay’s opening week win at Philly, was limited in practice due to a hamstring injury.

Suffice to say he’s a guy that already has Chan Gailey’s attention.

“He is an excellent pass rusher,” said Gailey. “He’s an excellent football player. You’ve got to have a plan for him because he’s good enough to warrant that. So we’ll try to make sure that we have people around him and have people sliding to him or people around him to help us a little bit from time to time. Maybe not every snap, but from time to time.”

Also limited were starting LT Chad Clifton (knee) starting DE Cullen Jenkins (hand) and reserve CB Brandon Underwood (shoulder).

If Matthews is still limited on Thursday, he might not prove to be as dominant and dangerous a threat as he looked in Week 1, and he looked good.

Pro Bowl CB Charles Woodson, who tied Bills FS Jairus Byrd for the league lead in INTs last season with nine did not practice at all Wednesday due to a toe injury. If he can’t go on Sunday that’s a huge bonus to Buffalo’s passing game because the Packers are already without Al Harris.

Reserve LB Desmond Bishop (hamstring) also did not practice along with rookie DE Mike Neal (rib).
