GREEN BAY — Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews will miss Sunday's game in Detroit with a hamstring injury.

Coach Mike McCarthy says the absence this week was expected. Matthews was hurt in the second half of Green Bay's Nov. 4 game against Arizona, and McCarthy said the next day that the three-time Pro Bowler would miss a couple of weeks.

"This will be his second week," McCarthy said. "We'll see what happens next week."

Matthews is tied for second in the NFC with nine sacks.
