01:18 AM ET 11.15 | During last week's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews got to sport a giant club on his right hand to serve as protection for his fractured thumb. The added weight made Matthews struggle moving around and limited his ability to get in position to make the plays he is used to. Matthews was able to drag down the ball carrier on two separate occasions, but it was obvious that he was struggling. In order to switch things up and make a bigger impact on the field, Matthews is practicing with a smaller brace on his hand that will still provide protection for his thumb against the New York Giants, but it will allow him to have freedom of his fingers.

We're talking about Green Bay here. It's much more likely made by Remington.

His other hand is probably a little worn out from "service".
