Pack­ers’ Matthews: ‘Cheap shot’ got him hurt vs. Ea­gles

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

GREEN BAY, WIS. | Clay Matthews didn’t mince words about the play that got him in­jured against the Ea­gles.

“It was a cheap shot,” Matthews said.

Matthews sus­tained an in­jured left shoul­der on a crunch­ing first-quar­ter block from Philadel­phia line­man Allen Bar­bre on Mon­day night

Matthews missed three plays and re­turned, then missed the next series while re­ceiv­ing a pain-killing in­jec­tion. He re­turned for the Ea­gles’ third series and played most of the rest of the game. Matthews recorded a fourthquar­ter sack, his first since the fourth game of the sea­son.
