07:15 AM ET 11.07 | While their quarterback sits, there is at least some good news on the injury front in the form of Clay Matthews and Nick Perry. Both Matthews (broken hand) and Perry (broken foot) took part in a modified practice Wednesday and are cleared to take part in a full one Thursday. As long as they show they can handle the workload, it appears they will both play against the Philadelphia Eagles. "I just spent a couple minutes (talking) with Clay," coach Mike McCarthy said. "You know, the first time wearing the club, there obviously needs to be adjustments that will occur during the week." ... Putting a club on Matthews' hand might seem like a bad idea, especially for those offensive linemen who might be getting it stuck in their ear hole. But if Matthews is going to make his return, he'll have to do it without any grip from his right hand.

He's playing club football now?

With Rodgers out, it will be golf clubs in January for this squad.

This could work. Nick can help Clay if he has to take a wiz, and Clay can help Nick if he needs some Gatorade. It is all about TEAM.

I guess he'll have to use his left hand when he's staring at his fatheads.

And who will help apply conditioner?

Discount double check isn't what it's all cracked up to be.

I wonder is the mighty Mathews can make it through the rest of the season. I came to realize why he is always so full on energy on the field and it has nothing to do with soup. He only plays half the games each season, that's why.
One more injury and they rename him Clay always hurt Mathews.

Having a club on his hand must make it difficult to hold a soup spoon.
