    Packers linebacker Clay Matthews will miss Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears for the NFC North title after aggravating a right thumb injury.

    Green Bay didn't practice Wednesday but issued an injury report as if it did. Matthews was listed as out.

    Matthews got hurt during a sack in Sunday's 38-31 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Matthews missed four games earlier this season after initially breaking the thumb in Week 5 in October.

    Matthews looked to be in extreme pain on the sideline Sunday after the sack. Coach Mike McCarthy has described it as a "repeat injury."

    The Packers had Christmas day off. They return to practice Thursday, when the team is also expected to announce if quarterback Aaron Rodgers is ready to return from a left collarbone injury.
