Green Bay Packers Clay Matthews shows off his surgically repaired thumb (PHOTO)

clayGreen Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews had pins removed from his surgically repaired right thumb last Friday.

“I need to get healthy,” Matthews told on Tuesday. “Rehab my thumb and get it back to 100 percent so that way there is no setback starting next season.”

Matthews, who missed the final two games including the wild-card round, originally broke his thumb in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions. The fifth-year linebacker underwent surgery then and played seven games with a cast on his thumb until he re-broke it in Week 16.

Since undergoing a second surgery in late December, the thumb had been immobilized. Now he’s working to strengthen it and get back movement by rehabbing it.

This looks like a gruesome injury, I hope the kid can recover.
