Oct. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Green Bay Packers Pro Bowl linebacker Clay Matthews probably will be out for a month after undergoing surgery on his broken right thumb, ESPN reports, citing an unidentified person familiar with the situation.

Matthews, 27, was injured two days ago when he sacked Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford during the third quarter of the Packers’ 22-9 win.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said at a news conference yesterday that he wasn’t able to provide details of the injury and was hopeful it’s not season-ending.

Matthews has a team-leading three quarterback sacks and two forced fumbles this season. Green Bay takes a 2-2 record into the club’s Oct. 13 road game against the Baltimore Ravens.
